  • Ondata vs Bl Manzanita: two large black figs I like

    Both first yr trees in 25 gal fabric bags. I like both figs: big, sweet, precocious, and productive. For reference the tags with names are 4.5 inches long.

      They are both very good. At least 8 of 10. That's very good for first yr trees that have until recently been heavily watered to maximize growth. I had some really good Ondata last fall from a small tree. It has my full attention.

        I so wish that I had the restraint to not pick my figs until they look like those lol

          Steve - any comparison of Black Manza with Galicia Negra ? I wont get figs from Manza this year but the Galicia Negra I got from you last year ripened some absolute beauties and I am expecting it to do much better next year.

            I think Black Man is GN on steroids.

            Could not agree more. I have yet to find a tree that fruits and grows like Black Manz.

          Steve, which fig is sweeter?
          I don’t have Ondata but I do have Black Manzanita.
          The Black manzanita has grown aggressively and has set a bunch of figs. Two should be ready tomorrow.

            I just ate the second fig of each for breakfast. I'd say both are equally sweet. These really are very sweet for such large figs. I like both equally well at this point. I do think Ondata is prettier but that could change under differing conditions.

            Thank you for this comparison.

          Both look great. The great thing with figs is that you don't have to choose, you can have both. I can see my future coming into view.

            I just picked two from my tree.
            Yes, I know that I should have left them on the tree for a few days longer BUT I’m dealing with a serious fig swiping predator AND it’s raining every day.
            I cut into one and I’m going to allow the other fig to sit on the counter for a day or two.
            Despite tasting watered down from all the rain, the fig was very sweet.
