  • Boss with figs

    My manager heard me talking fig talk, comes up and says....if I bring you in some figs can you tell me what they are?

    Of course I'm not going to turn down a few figs....lol

    So here it is, picked a little too soon....but still tasted ok.

    I would say VdB....but I thought I'd get the backup of best informative people on the net.

    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 5 photos.
    Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

    Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

        Yea that's what I thought too....I will tell him today it's "most likely" that.

        Thanks fellow figgers.

            Pardon the poor appearance of this tree. I’m refurbishing it. It’s a poor specimen I got from a local nursery.

              Not a problem....thank you for your input.

              I think it wise to go with the premise that being there when he bought his home, and the commonality of VdB in the south.

              That is what it is....still a chance it could be something else....but.....long as they taste good, why ask. Lol 😂

                I don’t know what it is, but it doesn’t look like VDB either.

                  Leaves are a tough variable when it comes to identification. A tree in full sun can have different shaped leaves when compared to a tree in partial shade. Eric had a really good video showing this. That said, those leaves do not really look like my VdB and my tree has both 3 and 5 lobed leaves (and a few spade leaves near the base on new growth.) The 5th lobe is much more developed than what is shown.

                    I'll have to check mine again when I get home.
                    They were pretty close, knowing there can be variable shapes.

                  so many VdB out there, hard tell which is which. old paradise nursery VdB Gene sold me had very distinct 5 lobe leaves, and slightly bigger figs than that. then there are others being sold with same name, but different size fig and slight different leaves.

                    Yea I was comparing it my both my VdB's....close, but one is young and one is a couple years old.
                    So they are slightly different.
