  • Lebanese Red/Red Lebanese

    Ok this is what I mean about my birds. The tree was netted!!!! It's enough to make a grown man pull out his hair.

    This is the Bass Fig. Does anyone have pictures of the other Leb Red to compare?

      My tree of Lebanese Red is pretty productive this year but none look red so far, a dark fig here in my climate.

          You gotta move to Florida, Gregg. On second thought, the birds, the birds!

              Frank, I know what you mean. I had one (1) fig on my J H Adriatic that had just started
              to swell. This morning, half of it was gone.

                Do they all have this open eye? How was the taste?

                  Tasted pretty good for a bird-slobbered fig. More figs will be needed to determine taste and eye size.

                  Thank you.

                  I have an U. Lebanese. .. I'm wondering how simular the leaves may be.

                After a summer of out of town guests and family, endless camps for the kids, a week away with the in laws, I am able to turn my attentions to figs.
                I purchased from eBay a Lebanese Red back in June - It arrived with 3 fruit which I left on fully expecting them to drop.

                A week a way in upstate New York and I was anxious to see my figs and this one in particular. 2 had dropped and I gave little hope for the reaming one. In one day it turned color and a gentle squeeze it fell into my hand. Was this a Ripe Lebanese Red fig ?

                As you can see its not very spectacular, but when I was finally able to share it with my wife I got a thumbs up!

                It tasted great, rich, sweet and chewy. Wish I had 10 more.

                Really happy with what I have.

                  Mine did not look like that. Is that a Marius variety?

                      I tried to attach a photo of Marius' to the above post and it told me all my changes would be lost. So I canceled that and Marius' LR will be in this post Only the yellower foreground leaves are the LR.

                        The pot on the right is Marius' LR. The leaves closest to the camera are from that pot but not the ones at the bottom of the photo.

                          Thank you for the pics Bob. The leaves are considerably different than my U. Lebanese. I thought that they may simular.

                            The pot to the right of center is Marius' LR. The leaves closest to the camera and the leaves just down from and to the right of those are from that pot but not the ones at the bottom center of the photo.

                                It was gifted to me by Andy in Denver, I do not know where he got it from.

                                I'll post pics tomorrow.
