  • Cerro Fig

    I just found this guy hiding amongst the leaves nice and ripe.

    This fig held up well to the 1.5" of rain we just had the last two days. No sign of wanting to split or spoil. The taste was very good considering the rain and this is its first full year of growing. The taste was sweet and refreshing with a nice fig taste. I expect the taste to get better with age and dry weather. The fig weighed 35 grams and took 78 to ripen from a tiny pebble size.

    Another fig that is good for a shorter season.
