      How can one tell when a fig is caprified?

            At this point in time, southern California, I'm not sure how far north they go.

            Some people are working to introduce them to other warm areas.

          Very nice. This is actualy the first time I see an un caprified fig that has a darker red interior than the caprified one. I'm talking about the LSU Smith figs that some of us sampled at the open field day at LSU earlier this month. The looked more green on the outside and a much darker Crimson red inside that was flooded with honey. Pollinated or not ,this is a must have fig! Looks delicious , Thanks for sharing Brian!
