  • Deanna Wow

    Im a VDB fig guy mostly but now that im getting these guys im really liking the variety of different flavors. Deanna is a great fig nice and large with a clean sugary flavor thats a nice change from other more complex flavored figs. Im glad i moved Deanna to a 20 gal pot last year its a winner in my book. Semi arid zone 6b eastern wash climate.

    Looks great. I’m really enjoying some honey figs this year too. It’s nice to have options!

      I think I like honey figs more than most people here but I haven't tried enough of them to know if I really need variety amongst them. Do most honey figs taste the same or are there differences? I'm curious if Deanna is very different from Long Yellow.

        My first year YLN have figs swelling. Will be compairing soon. My excel and corkys honey are not as clean / refreshing in taste as deanna is. Never had great figs off my 2 corkys and excel trees like i have off my deanna, deanna just seem more premium.

        shawnjames70 Excellent. I'm looking forward to hearing your YLN comparison. I have YLN and I really like it. So much that I got cuttings of Long Yellow, Corky's, and Deanna last winter, but the Deanna didn't make it. I'm trying to decide if I want to replace it but you might have already convinced me to try.

        Could you please put an air layer on for me? Can't find where that came from.

        Ohio Joe, once I verify that it's indeed Deanna, I'll get you a tree next spring. The figs are large. Thanks for the cutting.

      Deanna is an excellent cultivar. While prone to splitting, it does produce some nice big figs that have an exceptional honey flavor. When chilled, it's even better. Definitely our favorite honey fig so far. We also have Excel and Peter's Honey, but they do not compare.

        Is your Peters Honey in ground? It seems like everyone who likes Peters Honey says it has to be in ground or it isn't special.

        Figwasp It is potted with no plans to put it in the ground. The Deanna is in the ground and provides enough honey figs for us. Excel and PH ripen quicker for me, which would be the only reason to keep them.
