  • Figs of the day - Melanzana, Val Rosso and my first Honey Plum!

    I posted Melanzana earlier. That was a breba and an outstanding one at that. This main was even better and what a champ. Not many trees can produce figs this large that are so sweet and delicious.

    Val Rosso was also introduced by Pino - This one sat on the tree a real long time. A sweet, mostly seedless melon fig. Wonderful.

    And certainly not least, Honey Plum. Thanks to Evdurtschi many people are enjoying these figs. The tree has not been super vigorous for me. This late in the season and only knee-high.... but it managed to set a few figs and for a first fig on a small tree, this one is a winner. The name says it all.

            Cool! I thought they dropped main crop without the wasp.

          Yaaay, I'm glad to see some Honey Plum main crop pix. Mine is in its first leaf and set several figs. Looking forward to these!

                  Honey Plum -- my 1st leaf tree produced one 31g fig a few days ago. It was very juicy and moderately sweet.

                    I'm glad to see another positive report about Honey Plum! I'm waiting for mine to ripen. I think several people have said good things about it now, so I'm excited to try that one.

                    Did you use a greenhouse to ripen it, or is it just an early fig?

                        Hmmm Although I applaud your success, I admit to being a bit bummed. I culled my honey plum 2 years ago when all the figs dropped and believed it was a smyrna.

                          Is this normal for this variety to drop its figs before maturity?

                          I think after the Lorusso fiasco you need at least 4-5 years to make a decision that a fig is a Smyrna. Look at Oro and most of his others. All flourishing now throughout the US. Yes I know a few are still dropping but most are not.
