    The first ripe figs have arrived and they are superb!! Small, 25-35g and intensely berry with a nice acid bite. Super complex and one of the best figs to date this year.

    Good to hear. It was very tasty here, like a smaller, earlier AJH.

      Sounds pretty close. Here, the flavor is more concentrated and complex than JHA. I love this fig

    Beautiful, as always! ... But, before I add another to the never ending, ever growing list, (dang it! 😅 😂,) how would you rate it compared to other adriatics like Harry’s Crete, Unk Prosciutto, JH Adriatic, Thermalito, etc.? Is it different & great enough, or is it just another tasty one that doesn’t beat out the others but is equal to them?

      All good questions and I should be able to answer them later this year. I will be making detailed notes and, hopefully, trying them all side by side for a proper ranking

      Last year GM ripened 1-2 weeks ahead of other Adriatic types here, which is a big deal in September.

      👍🏼 That would be nice! Hopefully ripening times cooperate! 🙂

    Ok fine, I made a channel but it’s not all figs: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC2vAVzLns27I5JUiwpiPMUw

      Nice pics. This was my first “Adriatic” variety to ripen for me this year. I’ve been getting figs for about a week. It’s not in a prime spot so I think it’s safe to say it’s probably earlier than the others. Great flavor and doesn’t have to be picked at perfect ripeness to have good sweet taste.

        I didn’t drive over mine this year, cleaned it up, and have it in a prime spot so looking forward to this one. Hah

        I’m anticipating ripe figs around mid August.

          It always makes a huge difference when you don’t run it over! 😂

          Amazing pictures as always Eric. How far behind the earliest ripeners is this one?

            don_sanders Thank you. I think that is probably more typical Mine is a new tree and spent a lot of its initial energy growing before setting figs

            No problem. I don’t really have enough experience with it yet to say what is typical but that certainly is promising.

          Someone sent me a couple cuttings. I’m embarrassed to say i forgot who? I like to keep track of such things! Argh!!. Luckily Eric posted photos I can compare to. Although it won’t fruit this year. Photos of the leaves would be helpful too.

            I'll post some leaf pics soon. They are very distinct and long fingered. Beautiful lime green color too

          This variety is a solid 1-2 weeks earlier than any other Adriatic this year. Adriatic JH will probably be next, but its not quite there yet.

            When did other main crop figs start ripening for you and which varieties?

            I am happy to hear that coming from you. I have one that won’t fruit this year that I’m putting right next to jh in the ground next spring. 2 weeks would be huge for an Adriatic here in New Jersey.

          don_sanders You can't always make direct comparisons in my case because some of my figs were grown under grow lights, so their timing shouldn't be compared to the ones that only had the greenhouse. For the ones that only had the greenhouse, the following varieties have ripened so far: Hollier, RLBV, White Triana, Improved Celeste, LSU Tiger, Moscatel Preto, Green Michurinska, Algerian Chetoui, Black Bethlehem, Malta Black, Smith, Izbat an Naj. Hollier and RLBV began ripening about 2.5 weeks ago, while Izbat an Naj ripened recently; GM started about 1.5 weeks ago.
