    This looks very different from Harvey’s bc of my cooler climate but it is an excellent fig. Sweet and jammy with a complex berry winey type taste with an acrid skin. The bitter skin happens sometimes with cool weather ripening.

    Anyone else ripened this one yet? Seems like a real winner.

    I like these where it's like you can see the inside through the skin.

      Me too. It’s really cool to see the color bleeding through.

    It’s kind of reminding me of Lampeira Prusch pics that were posted not too long ago, though I think those were breba. Any similarity in flavor between the two from what you remember?

      It looks very much like LP so far and the flavor is also similar. I’ll be doing a side by side with them soon to compare and contrast.

    This was my casualty this year. My cutting from Harvey rooted and leafed out with tons of roots. A month after up potting…the dreaded wilt, then leaf drop. It might have received too much rain.

      Haven't ripened one yet as I only received a small tree this as gift from a local but it is growing and pushing figs already so I am looking forward to it next year.
