  • Barnisotte

    This has been a weird year for my Barnisotte. The normal size for this fig is that large fig in the picture. I've had a handful of small figs this year that ripened already. The rest on the tree are larger like the big fig. The last few years they've had a berry flavor. This year they are very sweet and rich with no berry taste. It's probably due to my lack of care. (fertilizing and water routine.) Needless to say this is a great fig and it never fails to taste great. There's a bunch of weird shaped figs on this tree this year. Along with a bunch of different varieties.

    Art same here. Mine have been very sweet, but lacked the berry flavor I expected.

      All of my figs are smaller and have less flavor than I'd expect and I've been watering and fertigating regularly. My highs have been in the mid 80s to mid 90s and lows over 65 for 2 months. It did rain a lot but that stopped long before any figs started to swell. I even added worm castings and lime.

      The last 2 years had excuses. It was too cool. This year it's just weird. Looks great, no flavor

        It does look good. Another thing I think I should have done this year is to thin the fruit. My trees are loaded. I think that has stressed the trees and some of the figs are smaller. I've lost huge branches with pounds of figs that broke at the trunk.

        That's gotta hurt.

      I have one in ground from ucd, I haven't tried a fig from it yet because the first ones dropped but it has a good bit on it now, it seems like it will be a productive tree after it grows.

          Barnisotte is still cranking out the figs. They are now the normal size. Much larger than those first few.
