  • Local Unknown 2015 peachy.

    This is one of those peachy tasting figs. It is an unknown. Could be a Celeste. The mother tree still had figs in September. I don't have any pictures of the ripe figs from my plant, but they were much darker brown than any Celeste that I have seen. It was planted in ground last August, grew well afterwards. It was protected this past winter with a 2' diameter, 4' high ring filled with hay. It still froze nearly to the ground. here are some current pictures and a few of the mother tree. In the last picture there is a small group of rooted cuttings of this fig, all except the one in the purple pot, it is Malta Black.

    Nice looking tree, I hope you are able to post pics of fruit later in the season.

    That peach flavor may make it a highly requested cutting come fall. I know it sounds good to me.

      Nice. I have a Celeste that has a peach flavor and the leaves look very similar. I love my tree, but I recently transplanted it and it is not doing so well right now.

        Very nice looking, Scott is right if you claim peachy taste, I'm sure people will be asking for cuttings. Hope to hear more about it.

          A few members here have it. Maybe they will report on it too.

        Looks really good.

        But your post makes me question:
        How come there are no peaches with figgy flavor?

          That's funny, I guess peaches taste like, well, peaches!

        Last year, I only got a few figs from it to try and they were excellent, IMO. I hope this year repeats and should have a larger harvest.

          A peach flavored fig does sound good.

            If it's peach flavored, I'm sure you'll have many knocking on your door come pruning time. Myself included! There's a seedling from Jon, Fico Pesco d'Oro, that's reported to have a peach taste. The fruit looks beautiful, seemed like an obvious choice to try out. I'm rooting it now.

              Here are some pics of my peachy Celeste. The peachyness depends on how ripe it is. If it is just ripe, the peach flavor is stronger, but it is over-ripe and all wrinkly, the peachy taste turns more into a sugary sweet kind of peachy, kind of berry taste. It is really good either way though.

                We really need a way to taste these over the internet!!! Scratch and sniff screen would just make the envy worse... so maybe scratch and lick screen... LOL

                Fantastic... everyone really. I can not wait to harvest my first fig this year, a Hardy Chicago is turning color so it's not real far away.
