  • Moscatel Preto - Best unripe fig?

    Moscatel Preto main crop picked August 4, 2021. This unripe fig was picked to keep the šŸæļø and šŸ•Šļø at bay. This was the best tasting unripe fig I have ever had! šŸ¤Ŗ It was sweet, firm, and had some seed crunch. It did sting my tounge a little bit due to how unripe it was and the latex irritation. That will be fixed with a few more days on the tree next time! šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ€

    This was ripened in Northern Virginia, zone 7a/b, in a 5 gallon pot, and no headstart in a greenhouse.

    Do you think unripe Moscatel Preto is the sweetest fig? What figs do you pick early and wow you?

    Figs4All, Looks awesome! Is this the first ripe one? Iā€™m in 6B so looking to see when I can expect it to be ripe next year. Thanks!
