  • Improved Celeste (ICON)

    My earliest ripening tree is still going strong. That front fig on the plate is a little underdone for my taste, but it fell off as I reached for the others so I'm forced to eat it. Thin skin, soft little brown sugar bombs. They're very nice with a little mellow farm cheese.

    Just realized they're much pinker inside this year, not sure why. Last year they were more tan/honey colored. Photo color on my phone matches what my eye saw.

      The same color change happened to my Kadotas a few years ago. Maybe pollination
      from the wasp?

      Of course if they’re suppose to be pink then that wouldn’t be the case.

      I think you're right, must be more wasp action this year. It's so interesting to see the difference. I still think the grayish exterior is not very appealing, though. Wish that part would have changed, too! Finodejete key88sf

    They look good, but I would have waited a few more days to pick them. Wrinkly necks are what I wait for.

      This is one case where a wrinkly neck is a good thing!

      Are you kidding? Who doesn't like jelly?!!! (Well, actually I prefer jam, but I think you're casting aspersions at both here!)
