  • Unk. Pastilliere main

    One of my best figs last year and this one too.
    Very unique and rich taste of a Bing cherry, a favorite when ripe. Not super sweet like a Celeste but way over it in terms of the flavor.
    The figs are medium sized and would hang until dehydrated to become prunes with an explosive taste.
    I do not know if it requires pollination, some people outside California say that yes.
    Very productive and healthy tree, early, does not appear to be large like a Black Mission, very suitable for containers.
    Definitely a keeper.

    Good to hear its such a good variety. My second year tree is dropping all its fruit and leaves too. Rafed said to hold on to it.

      Maybe it needs a wasp when young? Mine never dropped a fig. Not sure if the tree will change its habit when grown up.
      How was it for Rafed?

        I might have said it about the Pastilliere.

        As for the Unknown Pastilliere I got rid of mine.

        So, there are two. Pastilliere and Unk. Pastilliere.

          The Unk Past definitely needs the wasp. Mine is 8' tall and 8' wide, hundreds of figs that fall, ducks won't even touch them. I hope we get the wasp and that is the only reason the tree is still alive.

            Wow, that is one impressive tree size!
            You could try an overnight wasp shipment from the Paradise Land in the late spring, just to see if that partially helps

              Well I am using it as my signal tree. It is a great grower, I lopped 3' off a lot of branches as it was trying to shade it's neighbor.

                Wills, what plan are you concocting to get the wasp? I have always wondered why we don't have the wasp in Florida, as pretty much every bug known to man thrives here.

                  This is mine and never mind the spelling of the name on the label. It did drop some fruit early but it is ripening fruit not so what does this tell us? It is one of my most productive trees and a fast grower.

                    Think Herpshell had an oops, and had his plants mixed up.

                    Just the spelling. It's good that the original label is still in the pot and perfectly misspelled so it's not just me. Thanks for the help. Or is it an entirely different fig?

                  Mike,

                  We have two native wasps here in Florida but they won't work the Carica, sadly. Far as what plan........no comment. I don't know if bringing the bug in from CA is legal so and while this may date me and in my best Sgt. Schultz "I see nothing." "I know nothing"
