  • First ripe JH Adriatic fig

    This is a second year plant in a four gallon pot. I started it as a cutting. I probably could have left it another day or two. We've had some rain last two days and it didn't split or spoil. It was mildly sweet with a light berry flavor. It had some honey tones and the skin was soft. A good tasting fig. I do use organza bags because of the mocking birds.

      I have two that I just rooted out this Spring.

      The stronger one as 8 micro figlets on it already!

      I am going to pluck 6 of them off... and try the two if they make it on time.

      I rooted out probably 25 trees this Spring. That JH Adriatic has the most figlets of them all.

      I hope they taste as good as they look in a few years!

        You'll like it and they will get better with age. I have several rooted cuttings from this tree. Good medium size figs. I'll plant one or two inground at my Dad's place.

        One of mine shall be going into the ground as well next Spring as well.

        The other will be up-potted again in a year or two. I am trying to keep copies (potted) of all my in-ground trees in case we get a bad Winter the first year or two they are in ground. Then I can just pop a replacement back in the following year.

        I think this will be one of my favorites too! It has quite a few figs on it. I'm happy so far with this one.

          Yeah, I think JH is a winner. I'm curious how it will compare when I start getting other Adriatics.

            It competes quite well.

          I’m curious if AJH’s flavor is superior to White Adriatic. I’ve had WM#1 recently and in comparison, WM#1 is probably sweeter than WA, but white Adriatic is triple in size.

            I get three figs all marked as Adriatic JH. But I can tell the difference of leaf shapes. Also get the Stella and Prosciutto (unk.). Like to try all of them and compare.

              Adriatic is a great fig. just wish it was larger. I found one in the wild that had one branch with much larger fruit. Got some cuttings from it. The land owner there since sprayed it and killed it. In two or three years I should find out if I discovered a jumbo Adriatic. Cross our fingers on this one.
