  • De Tres Esplets

    First off, let me apologize if I am posting these out of turn. If there is a better way for me to post fruit pics, please let me know below.
    Anyway for what it's worth, I am SUPER happy with this years DTE fruit!!! It has GREAT seed crunch that our family loves! Not to mention, it's full of light berry sweetness! I have had VERY little splitting on fruits this year with this 2 year old tree here in NE Ohio (zone 6a).

    Thanks for posting. My DTE cutting is finally taking off. No fruit this year, but I am sure I will be rewarded next season.

      "Posting out of turn"??? We have to take turns? Nobody told me!

      Anyway, thanks for the contribution. There have been a lot of questions about DTE, so this helps.

      I rooted two DTE cuttings this winter and gifted one to my neighbor. I had given her a couple of trees four years ago that turned out to be duds for both of us, so I promised her new trees that would both set and ripen figs here in 5b/6a.

      DTE has been my fasting growing tree by far. Both the potted and in-ground trees are over 7-feet tall. I had a third cutting, so I started training it as a low cordon. It's also a monster. My first fig was quite early, although this was from a cutting I started over the winter. I'm now waiting on figs from the in-ground tree.

      Thank you for letting me try one this past weekend, albeit a day or two early. I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I look forward to putting this variety in my collection.
