  • Anna's Bronx White: Good brebas 2 years in a Row. Left Stella gone.

    Anna's Bronx white has given me very large, sweet honey style brebas last year and this. Running them in the dehydrator with no heat concentrates those flavors.




    The fig in the upper right is a Desert King which was good but not as strongly flavored.

    Tonight I was running around the yard pulling whatever was almost ripe off of the plants while the 'tomato' sirens were going off. Just as I was walking through my back door the torrent started. Here's a Stella breba from tonight that didn't have much flavor.

    Very nice Bob. The ladies look a bit wrinkled but definitely sweet! Anna's Bronx white looks almost like jam. Any clue of the true identity? Maybe a leaf pic please. Thanks for sharing.

      Leaf photos will have to wait until the rain stops and daylight returns. It's already dimmer than twilight here.

          Bob,

          Are your trees in ground, or in pots? In the greenhouses or outside?

          looking good! !! Real good.

            Most of my trees are in 7 - 15 gal pots and all are outside. I've been using large plastic dry cleaning bags to protect those near ripe from all the rain we've been having. It's been partially successful. I'll take leaf photos if there's enough light when I get home tonight.

              Thank you for the info, have you ever tried leaving a fig or two in the greenhouse year round? Other than when your ready for wasps.

                My HOA would not alow a greenhouse. I have a grow room I use to extend the season but a 1000 W MH light is no substitute for sunshine.

                    Bob C,
                    Thanks for sharing the photos and info.

                    IMO, the Anna's Bronx White looks like an Italian Honey Type (Lattarulla, White Marseilles, Italian Honey etc)
