  • CC, I-258, dsjg, bb, wm#1 2021

    I got chance to taste CC, I-258, DSJG, BB and WM#1 today. BB came from a first year rooted cutting so I didn’t expect much anyway. All others are 2+ years old plants. I like all of them and expect BB should be great next year onwards.
    In the picture: CC (craven’s craving) at the top, followed by I-258, DSJG (Del sen jaume gran), BB(Boysenberry Blush), WM#1.

                  First time getting fruits from 3 year old rooted plant. It’s a medium sized fig and to me more sweet than acid with light berry flavor. I like it.

                Whats a bb? Clearly not Beers Black... personally i love ol Barnacle Bill but his humor & dirty pirate singing style may not be for most. 🤫 youve been warned

                  ​​​​​​​Correct answer is I don’t really know, didn’t do seed sink test. However wasps aren’t present in all neighborhoods in San Diego and I haven’t seen them this year.

                    Hey Pankaj, thanks for the report! All your figs look very good. I’m surprised you got such great color on your first year Boysenberry Blush. My first year BNRs were more yellow in color, I should have removed all my fruit to get better quality fruit next year.

                    now I probably stunted my BNR because it held a lot of mediocre fruit. At least I let one of my BNR veg out instead of fruiting do hopefully I’ll get good fruit from it next year.

                    which one was your favorite?

                      Thanks, Simon.
                      Good that you have multiple BNR trees. Next season you should be getting some amazing figs.

                      CC and WM#1 are both favorites for production and taste. This is the first year I am getting more I-258 and I am liking it’s sweet and acid balanced taste, only downside is bit tough skin. I-258 likes to produce in clusters and has Breba crop too. It’s an awesome fig, it has potential to be my future favorite.

                        Amazing looking figs. All beautifully ripened.
                        Probably caprified.
                        You are very lucky to have the wasp and great weather.
