  • My unk ripened

    So this is my unknown, given to my wife by a lady at her work a couple years ago.
    They are really only about golf ball size, obviously a honey type.

    Though I had to rescue them from the rain and the flavor seemed washed out, though they were not split.

    Figures the rain has to happen right when I have some getting ready.

    So not really sure what it is....I have a few ideas.

    There are a lot more to be had so I will see if the flavor gets better.

    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 3 photos.
    Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

    Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

    They look really good! Hopefully, you can get one without rainy weather to try the true flavor. It looks promising!

      Yea I really hope it does well minus the rain.
      It may hit the cull list otherwise.
      We'll see.

    Well they seem to ripen much more evenly and allot smaller than the brunswick. If this is the same unknown you were talking about b4. I saw something earlier that looked allot like that. Maybe I can find it again . let me check. It looks nice though, I cut my figs in half and set them in front of a small fan when they get too much water and after a few hours the excess moisture evaporates and I get the more full flavor , those look like they would be worth the time dehydrating them a little. They look really nice.

      Yea they are the same ones I spoke of, They darkened a bit from the light green they stated at.
      I wasn't going to pick them but when I touched two they just fell off.
      Not quite hanging like the norm.
      I'll see if some get better being out of the rain.
      I'm hoping.

    I gotta ask.

    Those stripes I see, were they present when they were unripened?

      Nope...they were a solid light green, the stripes really showed up in the last couple days.

        So I wasn't exactly sure what type this was until now, thanks to Jamey shooting me a tip.

        I do believe this is an Alma.

        Exact matches to this description and pictures in all ways.

        Thank you Jamey!

          Nice sounding variety from the description. Carmel flavors!!! Sounds good. I hope my one unknown turns out to be this. It has leaves like this one. They look like Brown Turkey leaves kind of.

          The leaves are thicker than probably any other tree I have, It suckers like crazy...which is why I have so many. lol
          I think I will give some to my neighbors.

        I like the way your fruit looks. I'm interested in how your others will be. Keep us posted.
