  • โ˜”Found this fig in an old neighborhood - Fig ID please ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿง

    Would love to hear what you think this fig is. I propagated the tree in the pictures from cuttings of the mother tree; a large single trunk tree in an old neighborhood of Washington DC. This is not a typical look for a fig here in VA and I can't think of another fig like it. Any clues on what it might be?

    The fig was picked a little early, but tasted sweet with tones of brown sugar. This fig was exposed to a lot of rain over the last week and flash flood down pour conditions. ๐ŸŒง๏ธ โ˜” I am impressed it did not split. What do you think it could be?

      Otis You mean like in the 80's show Werewolf.

      They protagonist and antagonist would have a bloody pentagram of their palms when they were about to change.

      Actually Kid, I mean the 1941 film 'the Wolfman'. with Lon Chaney Jr. The pentagram played a part in it but it appeared in the palms of the victims

    Judging from the 5th pic down - Satan's Fig.

    Liking the color on the fully ripe one, and the flavor sounds comforting...

      Thanks for the suggestion. I love researching tips and Diavolo does not seem to be a fit. Thanks again.๐Ÿ‘

    I would say another Palermo Red/Sal's Corleone family member. There are many out there, some named and some Unknowns.

      Thanks ginamcd, it sounds like this fig is in PR/SC family with taste being more sugar than berry, and a leaf shape match. I'll look for the post you mentioned. You are always so helpful - thank you!

      They put on a decent breba crop and my parents get many off of their Unk in this family. I have not been able to get mine to set breba in my slightly colder location, but it is loaded with main crop that I'm hoping will ripen. This type tends to be on the late side for those of us in colder climates.
