  • Genovese Nero Not (Maybe) 2015 Main

    This three year old tree was moved from a 15 gal pot to in ground April 2015.
    It has been growing pretty well and had a good crop of large figs. After the
    birds devastated all of the fruit until this one that I placed an organza bag
    over it, covered it with a 16 oz plastic cup and placed bird netting over the tree.

    This is a good tasting fig regardless of what the real name turns out to be. There has
    been much talk about this particular variety over the past few years. It is the first
    tree I obtained called GN. I now have sourced two others that may produce one or two
    figs this year to compare.This fig has been described in taste in numerous ways.
    My two grandsons just said like a blueberry and gave it a 10 and 9. Its perfectly
    sweet (for me) and the flavor is somewhere between a blueberry and melon.
    Go figure but we did agree on an 8.5 on a 1-10.

      Big cavity Mike. A chipmunk could fit in there. Or a vole.

        That fig looks tasty, and it sure does resemble the few Lsu thibodaux figs my lil tree put out.

          Ryan, it does resemble my thibodaux also but this fig is much larger than my
          thibodaux fig

                  Thank you! It is truly amazing how much there is to know about figs. How many are simular while others strikingly different.

                  What will be your deciding factor on if it is or is not GN?

                    Scott, on this particular variety it will not be me deciding if this is the real GN or not.
                    I know the trail of each of mine and I know who has/had the original. I will have to
                    let those few decide and hopefully I can match one of my three or four varieties that
                    claim to be the real deal.

                      Time consuming to say the least, but worth it!
