  • Campaniere - Early, Productive and Vigorous.

    Title says it all. Highly productive and quite vigorous…a true workhorse. The figs are easy on the eyes as well Planning to let some dry on the tree to see how they compare.

      That’s a great looking Fig.
      Is Campaniere one of those that is difficult to root?

        In my experience, it has been fairly easy to root but I'm a firm believer that rooting success is dependent on cutting quality, medium used, watering habits and proper heat.

        I've tried so many great figs over the last year and I wouldn't put Campaniere in my top 5. It has so many great characteristics, which should earn it a spot in many yards but the Campaniere has never wowed me. It's a good fig that's reliable, early, productive and vigorous but I'm drawn to incredibly sharp flavors.

        Halligan- at the moment, here is my top 5 but I expect this to change in the next 3 months as some more highly prized varieties start to ripen:

        1.) Tie between Tia Penya and Thermalito
        2.) Figoin
        3.) Cosme Manyo
        4.) Beltrana
        5.) Tie between Smith and Socorro Black

        I know I cheated a little bit lol…

      I’m very interested in what you think of a Campaniere that is fully ripened.

        Oh really?? That's very good to know....I definitely want to try this one dried and I was hoping for a concentrated flavor but now you have me worried. I'll need to wait a while since a rat just ate all of my ripening figs lol.....but I got the last laugh
