ID:	1029814 This is an early honey fig with a simple, very sweet honey-type flavor. I was surprised last year how early it was, and it met my early expectation this year, first ripening on the same day as my Norella, 8/8. The plant had an early head start in a pop-up greenhouse and was planted in the ground in late May.

    The weights of these first two figs were 18g and 26g

      Great looking figs, I can not wait until next year when I should have a decent harvest of different varieties.
      SW TN 7B Wish list: Boysenberry Blush, Coll de Dama Mutante, Madeira Island Black, Cravens Craving, Malibu Greek and Fico Giallo. Any fig I can grow and Happy Days

        I culled mine last year, to be honest. If you're going to go with a honey fig, Latarulla is the better choice, IMO.

            I've been picking Latarulla since last week Ed. I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of the honey figs but I think it's better than Moscatel Branco. Again, just my opinion. If you're a fan of honey figs, you'll enjoy both.
