  • Acciano 2017

    Man I love this fig. It is a little late, and with my season everything is about 2 weeks late this year. I hope I get the main crop to ripen, in the future..when I can I will give it an early start.

    These are breba. Not a strong flavor, but just absolutely delicious. Sweet with slight fig, slight honey, sorta viscous, no noticeable acidity, and no melon flavors, but just plain delicious. Skin is tender, closest flavor(not same but closest) I can think of is white nectarine, but again no acid.

    Breba, my biggest figs I have grown to date.

    Since this isn't a well known fig yet, I thought I would give it it's own post. Hopefully I can compare with Aldo's main crop this fall.

    I'm not sure why the pics didn't come through as thumbnails? It's what I selected. Oh well.

      I just started cuttings a few weeks ago with no real idea about the tree. I'm very glad you posted about it Calvin now I'm really looking forward to it, those figs are HUGE!!

      Seems to do very well at our altitudes.

                  Be patient, it takes it's time ripening. It's good when it's soft up to the neck. It holds really tight and can be tough to pick clean without tearing the fig or damaging the tree.

                    Oh my God I can't wait!!!

                    I have a rookie question. I hear you're not supposed to water when figs are ripening or the figs will taste watery but the soil looks dry. What should I do? Water a little bit or hold off longer?

                      Looking good! I suppose it depends on your rainfall and humidity. Here, it has been dry and the air is dry. I water every night, I've never had problems with watered down figs unless we have been getting tons of rain.
