  • Stella

    I just had to show how Stella always leaks honey. (Vasilika Sika bc does the same.) Both of these started ripening about a week ago. I'd say you should have one or the other. It's a nice meaty, juicy, and sweet fig. It's also a giant. This one weighed 148g.

        My Stella killed over dead last year and now I'm jealous... That fig looks wonderful.

          It is a monster!!!! I'm sure it's as good it looks or better.

          Randall, I love your wish list! !!

            Very nice art, I always hear good things about this one, since my Vasilika sika is different (vasilika sika from vasile) I may have to find a stella.

              I know there has been some speculation that Stella and Dalmatie are the same fig. Does
              anybody have any definite information whether they are or aren't?

                Looks magnificent. How did it compare to Vasilika Sika for you?

                  Good to know, thanks. I'm planning to get Stella, but maybe I'll forgo VS if they're that similar.

                Looks good Art.
                Any difference in tree health, growth rate, and productivity to speak of between Stella and your VS?

                  The two have the same growth habits. Both are very vigorous. I have another that's very similar called Staten Island Bomb. It doesn't grow as large and has tighter nodes.
