  • Verdolino 2021

    This is my first time trying Verdolino. I almost missed these figs when I did my daily fig walkabout because there was very little color change or swelling as the figs ripened. I ended up identifying several ripe figs on my two Verdolino trees. Unfortunately the taste was just so-so. It's a first year tree, so that is likely a factor. Also, I'm going to cut back on the water supplied to the tree in order to try to concentrate the flavor a bit. Here are some pics and a video:

    Those are cool. If you almost missed them, I bet the birds will too.

    Awesome looking fruit bombs

          They are a small, sweet fig with a slight caramel flavor. Very productive tree.

          I'm not sure if its location, or needed a couple days, but thought I remembered Marios having shaded purple a bit.. It was about three years ago though.

            It does exist! I hardly ever see anyone post about this one. Did you give it a head start at all?

              be even better as get older

                zone5figger I don't see an image - could you try again? Did you get very many brebas from yours?

                It had a couple on it, a bit larger than the maincrop I recall from last year, 3-4 yr plant. Promising!
