  • Mare de Deu 2021

    I'm trying this variety for the first time this year and I was a little bit shocked by the great flavor of this fig! It has been raining heavily for several days and my figs have been spoiling and tasting terrible. Today they finally started improving. I noticed Mare de Deu didn't have any splitting or significant damage from the rain or bugs. When I tasted the fig, it was much better than expected. It had a strong sweet berry flavor that I would expect from a fig that ripened in much drier conditions. I'm only now trying this variety for the first time, but I think this could be a promising variety for rainy climates.

      Great looking fig. Would you say this variety would work well for the northeast ? Thanks again for sharing .

        Idk but i didn’t buy it last year due to reports it is very late, and I’m in Memphis. Pete gives his figs a head start with lights so it’s hard for me to translate that into ripening timing under 100% natural conditions.

        It’s hard for me to give a good recommendation on that as Jed mentioned, but I got this as a dormant bare root tree in late Mar ‘21, so it didn’t have a big head start. I’d be surprised to hear that it is super late.
