      These are huge. Whats the inside like, and taste description.

      Most importantly, where can we find them 😁

    BFF at 92 g but it may have been caprified. In general CdA and RGR are about my biggest.

      ramilviax yes. It’s similar flavor to YLN but the figs are flat instead. I liked yln a little better this year. However, my YLN tree is 8’tall with 4scafolds in a 15g and my CdA is a foot tall in a 5g pot. So not quite a fair comparison. I am looking forward to next year. For me CdA is prolific for its size I was able to eat 4 90g figs off of that little tree

    Orphan is the biggest so far. Followed closely by RGR.

                Also an LdA. This breba weighed in at 144g (and probably would've been heavier had I not picked it a bit early).

                  Here everyone shows giants with a "honey flavor". And I have a purple fig. The main harvest figs require pollination. The mass of each fruit is 100 g +. Click image for larger version

                    i forgot what my LdA source was. maybe UCD. two years i had it, it did put on large figs, but the taste wasn't optimal. maybe was too young.

                      Give it another chance. For such a large fig, I think LdA has great quality. There are better tasting figs but the size, reliabilty, productivity and hardiness bump it up in my book.

                      I might add that the breba LdA figs are not as good as the main crop figs. You need to let the brebas really ripen to appreciate their flavor.
                      LdA is one of my favorite figs. The main crop figs are solid and heavy. I look forward to LdA every year.

                      I live in a cold area where there is no Blastophaga. Growing figs of the Black Bursa type is impossible. The largest fig in my region is Dalmatiе.The tree is brought from Italy and is slightly different from the standard Dalmatie with narrow lobes. The dishwashing sponge is 8 cm / 6 cm in size.

                        Lda and golden rainbow for me. Lda is excellent if ripened during a dry spell here in New Jersey.

                          LDA for now, Yellow Long Neck and Golden Rainbow still too new to grow big fruit.

                            I only have one fig tree in ground, and that is the Brown Turkey fig. It gets a lot of figs every year, taste is not bad, my neighbor tells me she likes it.

                            The figs are big, some are like Geode rocks.

                                Yes, my photos above are of the CA Brown Turkey. Taste good when caprified. Otherwise not that sweet or much flavor.

                              160 gram breba, from an unidentified tree, possibly Brunswick. Inside was dense and syrupy, honey and caramel flavored.

                              I recently ate the main crop. They are smaller and brilliant strawberry inside. I have rooted cuttings and will see if I get similar results.

                              The best time to plant a fig tree was 80 years ago. The second best time was 50 years ago. Oh well.

                                Yellow Long Neck main crop, 197 g. But the smaller ones that ripen in fall are much tastier.
