    Jesse, I would say that main crop began to set by mid-may, the tree was fully leafed out by the 3rd or 4th week of April. So far its my earliest main crop this year, although Adriatic JH are looking like they will ripen any day now.

    A makeshift plan, currently. I have some polycarbonate panels on hand, enough to make a space that I could duck in and out of, abutting the house at back and garage on one side, making for a two-sided lean-to green frame. My concern is moisture from any humidity getting under the wood paneling of the house, and also potentially attracting critters to the protected space in winter.

    Rafael,
    Is IC your earliest maincrop? Any idea when they formed as rice sized figlets? I have one of these as well, but it only saw the sun after threat of frost past- late May😩

    Nice work. I've thought about trying to get a jump with Improved Celeste next year, maybe in a green frame, cross between a cold frame and a green house.

    Improved Celeste-Main Crop

    Improved Celeste, main crop. I waited almost 4 days since they turned color before picking (and devouring). I think they would have lasted another day on the tree, but no matter. They were good, sweet and sugary. I still prefer berry flavors in a fig. But nice to have main crop in July. I did cheat with about a month in the greenhouse in April.
