    Can you compare it with Strawberry Verte, Joe?

      Wasn't sure if you were giving them a head start. They can be late some years.

        You see!!! Battaglia kicks butt. Joe, believe it or not your fig could have used a little more ripening. Wait for the black or dark spots and streaks to show and skin slightly shriveling. It will blow you away!! Productive? Mine is pretty productive but ID have to say White maderia #1 even more productive. But battaglia beats it in taste at least for this year. For us down in 7A early Sept is when they start ripening. They are splitters but i think using a larger pot tames that down some. I cant imagine what a caprified Battaglia grown in California must taste like!!

          Agreed. It could’ve probably used another day or two but I hadn’t had one this season yet so I was a bit hasty to try one

        Nice fig Joe! How does this one compare to Unknown Prosciutto?

          Bigger than Prosciutto for sure. I find Prosciutto sweeter with more tones of raspberry and more seed crunch. For me Prosciutto is earlier and produces more figs

            I’m sure happy to see this is such an awesome fig. I rooted several and hope they one day give me figs like the one Joe shared with us. Thanks Joe.
