  • Nero600M 2015 Main

    This tree is an air layer from my mother tree last summer and was placed
    in ground this spring. It has really grown and producing some nice figs.

    This fig is much larger than the figs from my mother tree last summer.
    The flavor was of a rich Merlot Grape, which would translate into
    black cherry, plum and dark berries. The texture was perfectly firm
    with no seed crunch. The skin was on the thick side but not chewy.
    We gave it an 8 on a 1-10 and that is outstanding for the first fig
    from a first year tree. As a side note, the mother tree died back to the
    ground this past winter. It is now a five foot tall bush that has a good
    many figs that should ripen before the first frost in October.

    Thanks for sharing the photos and info...
    Looks like a nice healthy plant and the leaves do not look like VdB as some have suggested. I've added this cultivar to my in ground list for next season.

      Very nice fig and tree. Amazing leaf patern Mike. I had no idea that it's supposed to look like that. Mine is this years tree that was sent to me as a rooted cutting and in exelent condition. I almost managed to kill it but it's been making a very slow come back. When it first arrived the leaves looked kinda like yours but not as textured. Now all new growth has been single and three lobed with red stems. I do hope it's same as yours.

            The VdB leaf is similar to what I've always associated with VdB. My Beer's Black (Durio's) has the same leaf shape.

          My Beers Black BS is similar to your VdB, and my VdB EL are more digitate (finger like) as in the attached photos...

            Pete, the pic of my VdB leaf came from a plant that I air layered two years ago and is in a 20 gal pot. Although very healthy, it's growth has been stunted and the leaves are not nearly as large as the in ground mother tree. The leaves are not as finger like either.

            I do sometimes get a few similar looking smaller VdB leaves, but the majority are the more digitate, like fingers on an outspread hand, often with a larger (spatulate) central lobe, but they never look like the posted pictures of Nero 600 leaves. Thanks again for posting the photos.
