  • Castel Trosino - Mario’s #48

    Another excellent fig! I do not know the history of this but it was gifted to my by Mario and I have eagerly awaited this one for quite some time. Hopefully, Mario can fill us in on the origin of this awesome fig.

    Complex and sweet with a nice mild berry flavor. Texture is excellent. These first ones are large!

        Looks great Eric👍. I remember Mario posting that it came from the small town Castel Trosino. I think that's in central Italy.

            Evdurtschi sorry for the delay answering, I been having some medical issues that are finally being solved, thank God for my grandkids my fig trees look better than ever and I should be enjoying my main crop within the next couple weeks and also back to posting some pictures.
            #48 came from a small castle town Castel Trosino near Ascol Piceno central Italy, it still is part of Ascoli Piceno, it was one of many castles that helped protect the city from invaders including the Romans. The tree is about 30 to 40 feet tall and round located near the only entrance to the town . Very good producer of tasty and average size fruit, my 5 gallon pot produces 50/60 Figs fairly early , my in ground produce many doubles which I usually remove to help the remaining ripen in time.

              Thank you so much for the information. This is a great fig here and I’m very pleased to have it.
              I am glad that your trees are doing so well! Good grandkids.
              I hope you recover. If I can ever help, just let me know. :-)

                    I was fortunate enough to try this variety at @Evdurthschi 's place this week. It is a top tier fig in my book. It wasn't my absolute favorite of the day, but it was right up there. Thanks Eric and Mario!

                      The one you tried wasn’t prime either. It was a couple days from being perfect. :-)

                      After Eric’s post above, this one made it to the top of my list. Looks amazing!

                    Another nice one.

                    I've come to the conclusion that your fig varieties are more numerous than the number of days in a year.

                    Meanwhile my varieties number less than the number of days of the lifespan of a house fly...

                      This one looks really amazing. My tree grows really slowly. I gave all the trees fertilizer today, so hopefully it starts growing out of the FMV.

                          I haven’t heard of that one and I don’t see it on Mario’s list so it’s probably different??? Not certain though
