    Somehow some of the photos got switched he'd around and I wasn't able to provide the names to each variety. I will add notes momentarily.

        Thanks it's always been dependable and actually dries on the tree. Sweet and simple.

      Wonderful harvest. I wonder why some varieties create bloom on their skin while others grow smooth and shiny.

        I wonder that myself some get that almost waxy grape color. Kinda adds to the beauty. I'm torn between both shiny and matte lol.

        @Rudypraise I just realized I have your Kelly Green Unk mixed up with Blaze's Kellie Mt Etna Unk! Sorry about that.

        And thank you for the offer. I think yours was fairly well distributed this year, so perhaps there are reports on ripening time from colder zones...? I'm slowly eliminating most late ripeners from my collection, so before I accept your generous offer I want to make sure it'll work up here.

        @Rudypraise Thank you! I'll keep an eye out for others' reports.

      It would be hard to decide which one to eat first or which beauty to save for last.

        Definitely true. Luckily these ripened almost a week in between each other. The Vista is actually from your cuttings. Im am very happy with how much flavor it packs it was of course the earliest.

      That's a great line up of figs Rudy. Glad to see you're still able to get quite a harvest after the frost.

          In my eagerness to inspect and eat I failed to weigh it. In general it's a medium sized fig fig has some good weight in the palm of the hand. I'd say the size closest to compare it to is a Panache. I have some more coming so I'll be sure to dust off the kitchen scale.

          I’ve only weighed 1 all season, lol. It takes long enough to photograph them before we eat, lol

          I was just curious if it was as big as Texas strawberry. So far it’s been twice the size and had better flavor than wm1, JHA and strawberry Vert. Also a totally different shape.
