  • "Does anyone have white/black triana from figtrees.net"

    I found a bunch of information about both on the other forum but I figured I'd ask here to get more current information about the growing pattern, when does it ripen in your zone, taste, etc.

    I looked at the figtrees.net site and I saw he's now selling large figs for $55(3 gallon)-$75(7 gallon) for pick-up only.

    I live close to Boston so I was thinking of taking a ride over to see if Joe had these in the larger sizes.

    Thanks.

    Can one of the moderators/admins change the title to "Does anyone have white/black triana from figtrees.net"? I didn't catch the incorrect auto-correct.

      I have a 2nd year Black Triana, had a single so-so fig last year, expecting ripe figs by next month. Sorry can't tell you much yet. Some say this may be the same as St Jerome.

        ok, thanks. You answered my second question, when does it ripen for you. Keep me posted on the taste.

      I have had his Black Triana for about five years. It is was a very good looking
      tree when I received it and it is a productive tree.

        Mike, did you change the title to figtrees.net. It started out as "Does anyone have white/black triana from figures.net". The autocorrect in my browser changed the figtrees to figures. I think someone already changed it by the figures to figtrees. Can it be changed to "Does anyone have white/black triana from figtrees.net"

      Kevin I have one from Joe at figtrees.net. The breba are large and very sweet. The main crop is good too but can split if you get too much rain. Mine is in ground so if not protected good it freezes to ground level. When that happens I need to cover my tree with a makeshift greenhouse to extend the season. A couple of years ago it froze to the ground so with the mini greenhouse I was able to ripen all but two of the main crop. The last fig was ripe in the beginning of November. If it doesn't freeze back, then the main crop should start to ripen the last part of August into September. I now have one in a pot to avoid all the headaches.

        ok, thanks. Good to know about the winter protection. I have an unheated greenhouse that I store my figs in. It does dip into the 20's but only for a few hours at a time.

      I have both. Two year trees. Don't know how they taste yet. I got such a kick out of talking to Joe on the phone that I would suggest that anyone drive over just to meet him. Really nice guy.

        I met Joe a few years ago when I bought a Paradiso and Italian Honey Fig from him. He was busy at the time and didn't have much time to talk. I plan on going sometime in September to pick a large tree or two. The price really isn't that bad either $55-75 for tree that large (4-6 ft).

      I have both but have yet to taste a fig. They are on their 2nd leaf. The white triana died back nearly to the ground in Wilmington, nc, zone 8a, while the black triana had almost no dieback.
