  • Perla Nera 2021

    Just picked Perla Nera (aka Black Pearl) main crop today, it's a good fig and very sweet for me.

    Perla Nera is one of many F. Lorusso's varieties in Italy. My tree has been growing from a cutting since Sep 2018, and the cutting was directly from Lorusso.

    It is Common fig type.

    The dark black color is nice. Did it have any flavors for you or just sweetness?

      Thank you for your comment, Pete!
      It tasted more figgy flavor for me, along with the sweetness.
      I'm actually not good at describing flavors.

    Those are the blackest I've seen. When does your season end or begin?

      Thank you!
      And we do not have the actual dormant season here, so the trees keep growing, I could say the fruit season has already begun.
