  • Figs 2021 in Ohio Zone 6a

    Some of the figs so far this year in Ohio Zone 6a.

    Campaniere- Definitely a winner here. Early, productive and delicious!





    Blanche de Deux Saisons from the late Michael Grace. He sent me this tree a few days before he passed. Beautiful and yummy.






    Paratjal Negra (aka Calderona?) from Wills. We have only tasted a handful the past two years since the tree is still small. It stand ranks as one of our favorites. We are this one before taking a picture of the inside.

      Always nice to know what is fruiting well in Zone 6. Looks like you have some tasty figs. I've been interested in Campaniere. Early, productive and delicious sound amazing to me!

          Thank you for the invite! Unfortunately, weekends from late August-early November are booked with flag football, rugby, and coaching soccer games. I am outnumbered with 3 boys and a husband.

        They look good for this early in zone 6a! Did they get any sort of a head start?

          We just had all of our big fig trees in our boys’ clubhouse for the winter. We did add heaters when it got below freezing. Otherwise, we didn’t take them out of storage until Mid/Late May here.

            Figs starting from top clockwise:
            1. Campaniere
            2. Figoin
            3. Texas Peach
            4. LSU Red
            5. Bourjassotte Grise

            Our favorite this round was the Bourjassotte Grise (consistently one of our favorites the past couple of years).

            Texas Peach was very sweet but didn’t detect any peach flavor this time! We have several more that will ripen soon so we will see if those are more “peachy.”
