  • First Ponte Tresa

    Despite of all the rain we have been having,no splitting ,its still a great tasting fig.I believe it will take a long and hot growing season for this fig to ripen.......

        Brian, thanks for posting. How old is your tree? I have had problems with fruit drop and am wondering if it goes away with maturity or whether there are other factors.

          This fig tree was a cutting last year,it grew very fast this year with lots of figs,I observed that the figs formed very early in the spring and has taken a very long time to ripen and yes some fruit drop did occurred also.......

            Looks pretty syrupy. Thanks for sharing.

            Can you describe the taste? Berry, melon, figgy, honey??

            Looks good. That's unfortunate that it may be a late season fig. If it is just now ripening for you, I'm not sure that it would have time here.

              Well,taste is like no other fig I have tasted.......complex taste with melon overtones that linger for a while ,after taste is gone, you are definitely looking for another one!

                Time will tell how late, or better yet, how early it will ripen next season. When they're this young, their cycles and maturation patterns are not reliable predictors. I have a few figs that are still very young and ripening figs that not only taste blah but I can't tell if they are brebas or main crop figs yet.
                Thank you for posting the nice photos.
