  • My Unk. Vibo Valentia

    I haven't posted any pictures in a while. This is the first time that I posted about this one. This is a dark fig with red interior that came over from Vibo Valentia. The parent tree grows in ground and unprotected. It always dies back and reliably comes back. This is one that I'm looking forward to. You can see all the main crop.

    Fantastic.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the ripe fruit and a report on it.

        Rafael, It's a province in the Calabria region. I had to look it up myself.

            Here's an updated picture of the figs. These are the first ripe main crop figs from the tree in the picture. Though I've picked about a dozen figs from small trees that I started over the winter. This is a winner in my books. Tastes like a good Mt Etna type fig.

                Rafael had mentioned this fig on another forum. So I'd figure I'd post a picture of the last ripe fig on my Vibo Valentia. This is the only fig that I have that I can pick early and still be awesome. I could pick it almost dehydrated or a week early and still awesome. This one was picked early due to bad storms in the area.

                  That's a good quality to have for sure.

                  It won't split. It should do good down your way.
