  • Figs of the day - Ciccio Nero & LSU Gold

    I got home this evening and was happy to find a couple of main crop fig to munch on.

    Ciccio was really drooping and felt soft so I went for it but I could have totally waited another day or two. Definitely a tasty fig. Also very easy to grow and produces many figs. Another fantastic variety brought to us by Pino

    This LSU Gold was actually pretty small. This tree regularly puts them out over 90g.... But it was ripe and tasty.

      I love my Ciccio Nero. It’s a little late this year because I cut it back. Man it came back with a vengeance.

        I sadly gave my ciccio nero away to a new figster, may need to get another one going this fall/winter.

          Ooooo. You need to get one back Ciccio is a workhorse fig. It doesn’t cost a bundle but it’s A very heavy producer of delicious Figs. It does very well in our area

          Good to know Joe! I got ciccio’s from Pino recently. It’s been a slow grower but excited to see its production next season.
