  • Kuato 2021

    Beautiful fig inside and out. Taste is superb but the acid bite wasn’t as strong as it was last year and the skin got a little sunburnt but this was only the first fig of the year off our tree. Anyone outside of wasp land ripen any of these this year?

    Wish mine looked like that!
    WOW!
    without the wasp, they just shrivel and drop...

    Here is what they look like before they drop, really pretty. So far they are dropping.

    I may just need to invite the wasp over or hand pollinate sometime.

      I was actually going to tag you to ask how yours was doing. So all of your figs dropped this season??

      So far they are dropping. But look are right there with Palmata hybrid 0023 So I’ll keep it👍🏻

      Halligan- it’s definitely a beautiful tree. Worst case scenario…you have a nice ornamental or a good rootstock

    Looks great! Looking forward to this one next year. My small tree from cutting this year is just putting out some figs, so likely too late for any wasp action. Will see if they hold or drop though.

      I hope they hold for you! Either way, you’re in for a treat next year. It’s a winner in our location.

      Hey Mario. Not really a new find but AndyG is the one who found it a couple years back. I’m thinking it requires the wasp, unfortunately. I might send out some cuttings this offseason to see if others can ripen it. I can put your name on one if you want to trial it.

      I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Curious to see how you like the skin.

    I got one of these a couple months ago, and it keeps on putting out figs even though it was iin a 4x9 tree pot, just up potted it last night. So far, they’ve turned red and fallen off, but mine look a little different than Halligan’s. I have one that is a little larger and holding on that I’m curious if it will drop. I’m not sure if it was visited by the wasp or not though, I’m still determining how waspy my area is and it was in a protected spot.

      I think next year will be the best indicator for you when your tree sets figs at an earlier date. I believe mine started to set in late April, which I would imagine would be the same for you next year. If you don’t get to try it this year then hopefully you will next year

    I got a few from AndyG which have 5-6 figs on each tree and have yet to drop in SC but time will tell if they ripen here without the wasp.

      Looking good! Kuato is one of the earliest and most productive figs in my collection, usually starting to ripen around the same time as RdB. I still haven't heard any reports of it ripening without the wasp, so I'm very interested to hear how it goes for you trustyfarms!

          Looks great! Really looking forward to this one.

        Ripened my first one! Excellent flavor. The skin has the typical palmata type furriness. Makes the tongue tingle. I’ll let the next one hang til it starts to shrivel and see what it tastes like

        Yearling pushing out figs. To bad my caprifig's don't have any figs to use for pollination. Next year should be a great year for figs! Sorry not the best photo.Click image for larger version

            2AngelsMushrooms yes they all did drop never growing larger than a quarter. I used it as rootstock instead for Raasti and Prosciutto Unk

              Well I'm sorry to hear that. I think this one must be a smyna. Thank you for updating us.

              You're welcome and rootstock is never a bad thing now that I'm grafting instead of rooting in winter.

              Very good to finally hear a report on Kuato outside of wasp country - thanks trustyfarms! I thought it must be a smyrna given the mother tree's location, and the fact that later season fruit usually don't ripen here in So Cal.
