  • Black Mission Fig

    My neighbor gave me some figs from his in-ground mature Black Mission fig tree. This fig weighs 25g. It is a bit juicy near the stem, but the eye is quite dry. When you eat it, the fig has a pasty texture due to the dryness I presume. Was this fig just picked too early? Would it get juicier or just start to dry on the tree? Is this variety just not that impressive?

    It looks too early. Here's how mine look when I pick them.

      That doesn’t looks like a Mission. It looks more like a Brown Turkey to me. A perfectly ripe Mission figs have strawberry to red pulp. They are delicious even without the wasps.

        They may not remember the fig variety correctly. I'll have them harvest some a bit later.
