  • First decent sized sampler plate of the season

    Headed out of town for a few days, so I had to pick these tonight. The ripe RdB was amazing! I added the strawberry for fun.

    Vasilika Sika (Belleclare) - First fig ever from this plant. I don't think it was fully developed, but it was soft to the touch. Just ok for now. 7/10
    Ronde de Bordeaux - Based on the ripest one. You can see some wrinkling. 9.5/10
    Salem Dark - Not fully ripened. 7/10


    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 3 photos.

    Nice photos! I have always wondered what it would be like to compare a nice ripe strawberry a berry-flavor type of fig.

            Great idea to put the strawberry on there. But what do you rate the strawberry?

              Strawberry never had a chance. A wild strawberry, maybe.

              Frank glad to see your efforts paying off, the figs look great. The pale California strawberry-meh. 😜
