  • Banging budget figs

    The title says it all race horses are fun to chase and collect.

    My Italian Honey and my $10 Hardy Chicago from Lowe’s are putting out some awesome figs right now.
    Don’t be afraid to grow basic figs. There is a reason they are popular.

        There are some figs that are staples for every collection and those are just two of them.

          How was the italian Honey? It looks so sweet and delicious. Can't forget about the varieties that got us hooked to figs in the first place. 👍

            It’s was great, just a good honey flavor. Minimal figgyness.

          I bought a tissue culture VdB as one of my first fig trees from a big nursery for ten bucks, last year it was very my most productive fig. This year it looks like it will be again, with figs at every node of new growth. I fully agree folks shouldn’t sleep on the basics.

            Hey Mike are you growing main crop VdB or specifically for breba ?

            JMF75 Main Crop; my tree set a few breba last year but dropped them. I know VdB is supposed to be on the late side for my zone, but I’m hopeful based on how the fruit looks that I’ll be able to ripen most of the crop again.

            I got one last year so even though it’s a large tree this year only few figs on it. When does it start ripening for you?? I had negronne for few years the fruit is similar as they are in the same family but mine it very late. Never ripens all the fruits.
