  • Meteorito

    Well, the birds got my last Meteorito! I guess that was to be expected as it sorta stands out with its red cherry look before turning purple! At least I know it will have figs without the wasp.

      drbud - Bummer .... BUT... Silver lining.... Meteorito is common!!! This alone is huge! Learning this may be one of the best fig surprises of 2021 for me. I can't wait for mine!

        As TorontoJoe says great news for all of us who have Meteorito and sadly no wasp. Hey Joe do we have Angelito up here yet to test for earliness Bluemalibu hint hint.

          But did you taste it?! Lol.

          I had two smyrnas in pots, the last to be planted: Meteorito and Plint Nero. I wasn't sure if I should since I don't know if I have wasps, but they are close enough to someday appear. Everytime I think I settle whether one of these is actually smyrna, one of these threads pops up!!

            Brian M do you have any opinion on why so many from that source have that habit?

            Brian M thanks for clarifying. I did put mine in ground and look forward to trying it some day.

            It’s a mystery to me. In fact I believe there are relatively few figs that are true Smyrna.

          I did taste it and also the other ripe one that I got- sorta bland

            Did it rain recently?
            I’ve had a few first year figs look like this and over time they improved, ripening red vs amber with a sweeter taste.
            I hope that yours improves since I know how coveted this one is.

          Yes, we’d had 5 days straight of rain before I picked it.
