  • Green Michurinska 2021

    First two ripe figs for this year. Green Michurinska! Very jammy sweet with a nice berry balance. A bit of a crunch as well.

      Right on!!! I’m hopeful that my fruits make it to a ripe stage this year. My plant really want to grow in a bushy form, is that your take as well?

        No, I have kept it to a tree form actively though. I snip off suckers as soon as they show. It was in a pretty good form when it was given to me as well.

      My older GM plant has ripened the entirety of its figs this year, which says something here in my short season location. I have really enjoyed eating them, split resistant and less predated by birds is a major plus too! I rank it above Figoin(VR) and Verdolino, two other early green varieties in my collection.

        Great report!
        Can’t wait to try it next year!

      The fig looks like the Sorrento (AD) I have. Short season, small, green skin and red interior. Fig does not split and ripens gradually.

      Post the leaf of the GM. So we can compare.

        I'm thinking Green Michurinska would be a good add to my grove. It's going on my list. An August ripener (even with small fruits) with all the other attributes would be a fun add. How big to the plants run for you?

          It’s not quite as early here but it’ll ripen in time without a headstart.

        I had won a bid for GM on figbid last year but then the seller told me they didn’t end up having them/miscounted. It seems like a perfect fig for this area and zone. I’m hoping I can get some cuttings this winter and get started on them. Did you get any ripe figs the first season they were rooted?

            I’ve been growing this variety for several years now and have never had leaves shaped like these on mine.

          Here are the leaf photos of Sorrento (AD). Look to be the same shapes. So what is the history of GM? I know Aaron D named the Sorrento from one of his customers who has linkage to Sorrento. Sorrento and Green Michurinska look to be the same or similar.

              What is the source of your tree? I read the original thread of the Green Michurinska. The leaf shape is not anywhere close to what you just posted. Also the fig is a medium to large fig. Not the small figs we posted here. Something is missing here.


              It appears to me the Green Michurinska imported and distributed in USA is different than the "Green Michurinska" "named" and reported by @penandpike.

              Repost some of the photos from @penandpike who named the "Green Michurinska".

                Very interesting. The leaf shape from Pen has very smooth edge. But the ones from above show rough edges. Pen's fig shows medium to large round with yellow glow. But most of the figs here show small tear-drop shape with pale green or pale yellow color. I can't connect them together.

                At least for the Sorrento (AD), I do not see the connection with Pen's Green Michurinska. But I clearly the linkage between the fig here and the Sorrento (AD).

                I would not call those large. He says the same size as Florea which is small/medium. He also has the wasp so those could be pollinated figs and maybe from a gigantic in ground tree…

                I don’t think there is any question that Pen’s GM made it into the states…

                It could be. Most of the GM figs I've seen are in the sub 30 gram range. That is in generally smaller than Hardy Chicago for sure.

                That is good to know. I really like to hear from @penandpike to get some update. It is a good fig variety.

                I can't say the Sorrento is the same fig like the GM we have here in the States. But they share the same characteristics. I'm not sure when Aaron found his fig. But definitely several years. So it is not imported from Bulgaria. The Sorrento has Italian linkage.
