  • First Galicia Negra for me

    First fig of the season and first ripe fig off of my Galicia Negra. Taste wasn’t too special but I know it’ll be better as it grows up.

      Thats a great looking fig. I am rooting Galicia Negra. Sure hope it survives and produces for me. I really like the color of the inside. Do you have any pictures of an uncut fig?

        Unfortunately I didn’t get a pic of the skin, but it was straight black on the top side where it got the most sun and purple on the bottom side where it was in the shade. I think it’s considered among the top tier varieties so I’m excited to see what it does next year and the years to come

        I have two I rooted out this year as well. GN is one of the most vigorous. I even have a little figlet on one of them.

      It's a very good fig when everything comes together. You've got the looks now for the substance. It will come.

        Believe it or not this one came from you off of figbid at the beginning of this season. Had 3 figs on it when I got it, I plucked 1 and let the 2 others ripen. The first one I picked felt soft and ripe but when I bit into it, there was still some latex in the skin, and this is the second of the 2 that I left on. I’m excited to see how it comes through the next couple seasons, I’m sure it’ll be fantastic!

      Awesome! Bravo! It is a variety that can take some years to mature but give it time and you will be rewarded. Truly a beautiful fig.
