  • Tres Ao Prato Sofeno Claro 2021

    Holy moly. Talk about promising. This is the first fig off this little tree and it was killer. It could have gone another couple of days, as many can, but it was still super sweet with a very good berry flavor and tanginess on the end. The skin is slightly fuzzy but not tough. I didn’t detect any resin flavor at all so think it was fully ripe. The tree seems to be a water hog, which is interesting. Very tight eye, no splitting or cracking.

    Timing-wise I seriously doubt this is indicative of long term ripening time for my climate. This is a first year tree that came with a few figs already on it. However, if this variety ripens in a reasonable fashion next year without a headstart I think it could be an excellent option for the PNW.

    Ok fine, I made a channel but it’s not all figs: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC2vAVzLns27I5JUiwpiPMUw

    Just had a second one. My wife said it was faintly raspberry flavored. I would agree. Definitely a tasty one. Should be relatively easy to get for anybody looking. I’m very excited to see what this one does with more maturity. I’m not sure I agree with the “3 to a plate” name but maybe in the ground it’d be bigger.
