  • Figs for thought

    Wow! Nice looking figs. I'm eagerly anticipating a few brebas on my Desert King. All my other ones are still bright green.

    Celeste? Or a variety?

      Did you ever figure out what type of fig that tree was by the stop light? Celeste? Brown Turkey?

          I can't wait for mine. I haven't got many in the last 2 years. This year I put a lot in the greenhouse but I don't think I will get that many, wow they look good. OTOH my apple crop will be the best I ever had

            My apple trees are very happy this summer too. My Asian pears are going wild! I think it's all the rain we've been getting.

              Ross, jam is enjoyed by many unfortunately the extra sugar makes it off limits for me. I even make cane syrup but make it is it.

              Good gads, Hershell! I'm pretty sure I'm drooling on the paperwork on my desk after seeing those gorgeous figs. One of these days/years I hope I can post a photo like yours.
