  • Breba Tasting Meet in Seattle

    A few people in the Seattle area got together on August 1st to taste test 16 of our earliest producing breba fig varieties. I brought a single white madeira and nero 600m that each had to be split 8 ways. It would have been nice to have a larger sample size but we took what we could get. There was no shortage of desert kings and we had a good amount of violette de bordeaux too. I posted a video showing some of the highlights and each person's favs and the overall winners from those we sampled.

    This is my first time participating in a tasting like this and it was a lot of fun. I tasted my first melon fig and found I'm not a big fan of those types. I also made the decision to plant my Olympian fig in ground and I'll be making some adjustments to my fig potting mix to provide more aeration and better drainage.

      Thanks for the video and your company Paula. It was a great fun get together with added bonus of meeting fellow figgers.

          Here's the graph of the brebas we tried and how they ranked. Note that the green ischia was mis-labeled. Not sure we figured out what it really was.Click image for larger version  Name:	breba fig tasting results.png Views:	0 Size:	71.0 KB ID:	1029909

            What is the y-axis. Do you have different scores for 1st place, 2nd place, etc.? Thank!

            Each person submitted their top 5 though a couple did top 3. I assigned 5 points to everyone's #1 fig, 4 points to #2 fig, etc and then added them all up to get the overall top fig. The ones with no bar did not make anyone's top 5 list. There were only 8 of us voting.

            If you want to see what each person's individual top 5 were you can watch the video. Desert King was the only one that was in all 8 people's top 5 list.
