  • St. Rita 2015 Main

    First fig to eat from this three year old tree that was put in ground in April this year.

    I would hope that it improves drastically because it is lacking in sweetness and
    flavor. It is a good looking fig, but only gets a 5 on a 1-10.

    Thats disappointing to hear. I guess it's best to give it another couple of years just to be fair.

          I keep them all at least three years after tasting to see if improvement enough to not send
          them to the burn barrel. (Hi Martin)

                  Right now if I burned all the bland figs I'd have to call in an air strike!

                    Mike, did you taste brebas off of yours? I had a few off mine and I thought they were pretty good. Since the main crop is usually better than the breba crop I am hopeful that they would be excellent figs but I guess that isn't always the case.

                      Steve, no brebas but you know they could taste a lot better in some other soil in a different
                      part of the country. Yours may turn out to be just fine. Keep me posted please.

                        Hey Mike, if looks could kill.... To me this is a great looking fig . In and out. I'm pretty sure you were joking about burning the bland ones but just in case you were not please let me have them. Fair trade with something else and see how they do on this side of the woods! If they improve I will return them to you. NO FIG TREE deserves to burn! Kind of like a fig tree summer camp I guess. Thanks for sharing all those nice and unique varieties with us.
