  • Bisirri Figs

    Just had my 1st from Bisirri #3 today and it was one of the best figs I have had this year, I don't know if the stars aligned, but I will be eagerly anticipating more to evaluate. I had a couple more Bisirri #2 as well which is a fine fig. I know Mr. Bisirri will state they only have 2 figs, but you can read those threads on F4F. They are similar and I have 2 of each from Ricci what he called #2 and #3. one of each in ground and one still in pot. I do think I have 2 different figs as both the #2 been fruiting for a week or so. whereas today was the 1st #3 and most on #3 are aways off yet. The leafs on my inground #3 seems matches the #3 photo in the old threads, but my #3 in pot looks very close to the #2, but does show some leaf like my other #3. Maybe one of the Philly folks that have been growing these for awhile can provide more input. I think I need to get #1 now.

    Thanks for sharing the photos and info...
    I've stayed away from the Bisirri Figs simply due to the confounding names.

      Ah, but a fig by any other name would still taste as magical.

        I have Bisirri #3 and it is good! Ricci gave me one last year and it is a strong grower. It was one of my earlier producing varieties. I think the first main fruit ripened August 1 here in Lancaster PA. I also like the "closed" eye on it-see pic #3. It resists splitting and probably has/had 25-30 figs on it this, it's second season ( from cutting). Edit: I picked this one early just because it is on my mind now and I will forget later...it was still PDG.

          How was the taste? Are they like most of the Mt. Etna figs? I have Bisirri #2, but not tasted one yet.

            Yes much along the taste of the Mt. Etna figs, probably in that group which seems to encompass half the dark berry tasting figs

              Can anybody show and tell this fig for 2020?
              Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.

                  There are several different Bisirri figs and the naming convention for them is confusing. I am growing "Bisirri Large" that I got from Ricci Fields in Philadelphia. It seems too be in the Sal'sC/Palermo Red family. I've posted on it before.

                    Great video and great orchard. How many trees do you have? It’s been 2 years since that video, tree must be bigger now. Thanks for sharing.
