    I got home late from work today and didn't have much daylight left to spend looking for ripe figs. Fortunately, I was able to take a look at this variety that I am trying for the first time this year before the daylight ran out. It is a large fig, so I wasn't expecting much, but it was actually pretty good considering the poor weather conditions. In a drier climate, I think this variety might show real promise.

      That's a big one!
      Looks tasty.
      Was the eye pretty open or is that from cutting it open?

      Note, have not seen the video.....at work
      Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

      Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

        The eye split open on its own, but it had rained quite a bit the day before

          That looks super rich.
          And the eye stayed intact on the last one
