  • Emalyns Purple Breba 2015

    This is a three year old tree and my first fig from it. After losing my first few figs this year
    I tried this 32 oz cup split down the side and placed over the fig and branch. This was a
    suggestion from "driveway farmer" in an earlier thread. It did keep the birds from it but
    I knocked off the other breba that was not ripe when placing the cup on it. This is a
    very good fig for breba. It is a very sweet melon flavor with no seed crunch. If the main
    crop is this good or better it will be an excellent fig to keep. I gave it an 8 on a 1-10 scale.

        Now that's what I'm looking for...

        it looks like you've got the tree in partial shade?

        good idea on the cup...just happen to have a few of those around...I'll give it a try on a genoa the bluejays are watching

          Yes partial shade. I have 36 in ground trees that get 4-6 hours of sun per day and do just fine. Probably not as productive as the 39 in full sun but that's ok.
