  • One of my mystery fig trees has fruit

    One of my mystery trees have fruit this year. This was one I acquired from Raintree in 2019. It was basically a stick that kept coming out of the pot with a bundle of roots at the bottom they were just gonna throw it away and so they give it to me. No label no nothing on it to tell me what type it was but it has little fig babies this year. I also got a good leaf shape photo on the 2nd to last photo. You can see all the baby fruits developing still so I must wait for them to ripen. Any guesses as to what it might be?

    Madeleine de deux saisons? Leaves aren’t quite a match but the fruit is close.

      I also was going to say Longue d'Aout. If Raintree has this or Nordland or Black Niagara, it could be that. Let's see what color it turns when it finished ripening up.

          In the last couple days one of the figs on my mystery fig swelled and changed colors on me and is now soft with a wide open eye.

            I got some great photos in morning light. Now I do think I picked it a few days to early. I was afraid bugs would start getting into it since the eye is opened.

                Looks super unripe. Inedible even. Don’t judge the flavor.
                guessing your lips went numb on that one!

                  Nope it didn’t go numb but yes under ripe. But I love under ripe and ripe figs as I’m a little bit of a freak of nature lol.

                    I just bought a pop-up greenhouse so that the rest of them on the tree can actually ripen up better in the next month.

                      I have another one ripening up now. I’m going to let it stay as long as I can.

                        Alright I’ve held off on picking this one. It’s so soft not sure how long I should let it go.

                          Definitely LdA, Nordland, Black Niagara type.

                          p.s. IMO, this fruit needed another 2-3 days.

                            Going camping so had to pick today. But I was planning to leave a tad longer. It’s was delicious 🤤

                          I think it looks like a young tree of Moro di Caneva

                            I went ahead and harvested it and there was zero white liquid. It was delicious 🤤 very sweet with a honey berry flavor and thick syrup. It’s a keeper for my collection.

                                  Others think that it is LdA. To me the leaf shape isn’t quite matching up to that but I now have some cuttings this year of LdA so time will tell and I will compare it in the meantime I have an excellent fig that produces rather early-ish and is very yummy so definitely going to keep it. However I did go and look up Madeline de deux saisons and I found that the leaf shape match the leaf shapes on the French figs website and the fruit looks very similar. And I know Raintree used to carry that particular variety around 2019. If I can find my catalog from raintree from 2019 I may be able to find out for sure I used to have it but there’s a chance It could’ve gotten thrown away. But it any rate it’s been a fun mystery ride and two years later finally getting figs and I couldn’t be happier.
