  • Zingarella 2015 Main (UPDATED)

    This tree was a replacement given to me by my good friend Strudeldog to replace
    what was one of my favorite varieties that was killed during the winter of 2013.
    It was placed in ground in April 2015.

    This is the first fig from this tree and was quiet sweet but not as flavorful as the
    figs from my previous tree. The flavor was more of a raspberry. We gave it
    a 7 on a 1-10.

    *Updated 9/9/15
    This is the second fig I was able to eat due to birds and chipmunks.

    This fig is much improved from the fig two weeks ago. It is much larger, just as
    sweet but had a more pronounce berry flavor. We gave this fig a 8.5 on a 1-10.
    I also changed the pics to this fig for my files. Enjoy

    Looks good Mike. Hope it rises to the prior tree. Does the fruit look like the prior tree?

      I was just looking at pics from 2013. The skin was a little different and the pulp was
      much more red. Maybe more time will do it plus the other tree was in a buried pot
      and not in ground.

        Do you think the replacement tree is the same "strain" of Zingarella as the original? As I'm sure you remember, there seems to be at least two types of Zingarella. Hopefully it is the same and eventually it will exhibit the characteristics of the previous one.

            Mine looks somewhat differently...more mount Etna-ey. I will need to post some pics.

              Hey Frank, I think the "real" pics of mine look different also. Those
              are the wrong pics. Ha

              I will have to repost when the next one ripens.

                Mike,

                Your first was "the original". It was sourced from Adriano and he got his many years ago.
                Steve is correct, there is another strain out there that could or could not be the same.

                There is another member that has the original strain and you know him very well. If you are interested I can tell you who in private.
                I gave mine away recently.

                    Rafed, I'm pretty sure I got mine from someone who got it from you. Is this how you remember it? I guess looks like a cross between a Mount Etna and a Sal's Corleone now that I look at it. Very tasty, either way!

                      Frank, thanks for posting the pics. If I get more to ripen I can compare. Between the birds, chipmunks and SWD, I don't know.

                        So any experts to say anything about this Zingarella?

                        It does not look like a Mt Etna fig, more like a Sal's Corleone/Aldo

                            Nice! Thanks for an update.
                            With a luck, I should have about 15 figs this season, from 2 cuttings rooted in February , one in the ground.
