  • CdDG & Petit Negra RT breba 2015

    The CdDG breba weighed 19g and the PNs weighed 22g & 23g. These 3 all took much longer to fully ripen than the RdB breba did once they started to swell, seemed like a week longer but it could have been a few days..I didn't keep track. They were all good, the PN looked better, but the CdDG was much more intensely flavored in comparison. The PN tasted melony, the CdDG tasted melon-berry-something extra. PN is in 4th yr here in pot and the CdDG is in 2nd yr here, both were about 1yr old when purchased.

      Not very sweet, the PNs were about a 5 on a 1-10 sweetness scale and the CdDG was about 6.5-7 . They were still a treat to have something to look forward to and taste.

      Thanks, I know..that's what I thought. Our sun is pretty intense here, I think it really darkens figs to their max potential. It came from Herman, so I don't doubt it's legit. His picture of a main crop is actually pretty dark too.

          I should be knocking on wood and crossing my fingers and toes as I say this, but no..at least not yet. However, I didn't have a bird problem with my blueberries either until this year. Now I can only hope to get a berry that is half green and purple before the robins take it.

        The last 2 Petite Negra RT breba, man were they good. I'm happy the tree has a good main crop going this year, what a wonderful variety and available anytime.

            They look delicious Calvin, the PN sure looks like my Negrone. Leaves ,baby figs( main) and all ,they must be very closely related if not the same cultivar. Thanks for sharing.
