  • Doree 2015 Main

    This is a five year old tree that I had in a fifteen gal pot and placed in ground
    April 2015. It was looking pretty bad in the pot but has since perked up. If you
    search Doree you will find that there is much discussion about what the real
    tree looks like. There are several other names used for this tree. I have been
    assured this is authentic and until proven otherwise I will run with it. Ha

    This fig has a very unusual flavor and the texture is more firm or solid
    and not jammy. The flavors are complex and it has been difficult to describe
    each time I taste it. Today, a little peachy and a little pear. Not super sweet
    and it has no seed crunch. The flavors are not as good as the last two years
    and it gets a 6 on a 1-10.

      Where did you get your plant? UCD lists this also as Goutte d'Or, which is supposed to be a
      big golden fig.

        As stated above, If you search Doree you will find that there is much discussion about what the real
        tree looks like. There are several other names used for this tree. Below is a couple links that show a pic that
        is very similar to most of the figs on my tree, although it is not my source. The second link also shows a
        pic of Goutte d' Or' which you can see that there is a difference in the fruit.
