    Ross had mentioned this among his top performers a couple of years ago and I was fortunate to get one from him. He was definitely correct about this variety. It’s a stunner and a tasty little gem that you will NOT want to share!!

    Intense berry flavor, pooled with honey, thick and jammy, small/medium size figs that can dry on the tree, none have split, shockingly gorgeous.... this fig has tremendous potential.

          I've been growing BdDS in ground for about 5 years. It has some interesting differences compared to other adriatic types like Adriatic JH, Rockaway Green, Battaglia Green, U. Proscuitto, Green Michurinska and a few others. First, it is definitely less cold hardy than those others. I suspect this has something to do with why zone5figger is culling his. So it always dies back for me, even with protection. Then it takes a while to get going in the Spring. However, once it gets growing again it very quickly sets a main crop. So that partially makes up for the die-back problem. In the end, it does ripen fruit a bit later than the other adriatics but not by a lot. I always get a few ripe fruits in October. I can see the potential but should probably cull mine too or move it to a container. In zone 8 or warmer with a long season it should do well.

            Evdurtschi that's great that it ripens relatively early in your climate. I think if you can keep it from dying back then it will set fruit quickly when it gets growing in the Spring. This motivates me even more to move it to a container.

            Sod do adriatics have issues setting fruit in your climate? Here, that isn't a problem. Rather it is more about whether there is die-back and the length of time from fruit set to ripening which is rather long.

            No Steve. They seem to set fine but I haven’t had good luck yet with getting them to ripen before fall. This year should be different, but we’ll see. I have some that set really late not getting a headstart.

          Wow...
          Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.

                Rewton and Eric, What about the breba set? I normally don't care about brebas...but I mean it IS called "two seasons" so I have always wondered if the breba was good and the reason for the name. (Recongnizing that @Rewton's die back would lead to no breba, but maybe you've have one year with die back?)

                  My tree was prunes heavily, for shape, so I didn’t have any breba but I will not prune much this coming winter.
