  • Lattarulla 2015

    These are my first figs from this 2nd year plant. Actually my first main crop figs this year. Very sweet, pleasant flavor. Best I can do description-wise, not very experienced with fig flavors yet.

    There seems to be some confusion on this variety. The Edible Landscape nursery describes their Lattarulla as being similar to Desert King, a breba fig with an inferior second crop. Mine is definitely not a breba crop, was obtained from a friend, no idea the original source. Also some discrepancy regarding spelling of the name, sometimes seen with one T or one L.

    Anyway, my wife, her mother and I split these 2, we enjoyed them!

    Thanks for sharing the photos and info.
    Edible Landscaping is the only place where Latarulla (tt, ll) has been linked to a San Pedro Type fig...

    Its an Italian Honey fig (group) and the brebas are the earliest ripening figs in NYC with main crop ripening in July (after mild winters).

      My Italian Honey figs are just starting to ripen now. Last year they were just ok. I'm hoping this year they are as tasty as people say they are.

        Picked my first Italian Honey today. I wasn't planning on taking a picture since I picked this one a day or two early since I was concerned about small splits around the eye.

        It was much sweeter than my ones last year. The taste lived up to its namesake. It tasted a lot like biting into honey-infused fruit. I still like the dark figs more at the moment, but Italian Honey has graduated to the keeper list this year.

          Just wanted to add a picture of the latest fig from this plant/variety because it seemed so much larger than the first ones (have had a couple of others since original post). Need to get a scale to help with comparisons (my wife already thinks I'm obsessed because of taking pics of many of the harvested figs - why would she think that??) Anyway, posting this just to demonstrate some variability. This was not quite as moist as the previous ones, but tasted the same.
