  • Des Roig Manyo 2021

    I'm trying this variety for the first time this year. I think I picked this one up based on Harvey's description of the fig, because I looked back through previous postings on this variety, and I'm not seeing a lot of praise for this variety. I'm also confused by Pons' description of the taste as bland. That wasn't my experience at all. Mine tastes a lot like Harvey describes, which is a very sweet flavor with some berry. I'd compare it most closely with the taste of LSU Tiger. A very good fig!

    That definitely looks good. I like the gradient color yellow green to purple to olive.

      Last year I let it dry on the tree and it tasted very sweet and chewy. It was like eating a gummy jelly candy. I plan to do the same this year.

        Yes. Very sweet with chewy skin. I’m glad others are getting the same characteristics. I didn’t let the pulp gel but I might try that

          Hello SubmarinePete.
          I recently acquired Des Roig Manyo cuttings and they’ve just begun to root. I was wondering if your tree exhibits red petioles?
