  • Jurupa - example of effects of caprification (I believe)

    I collected some Jurupa fruits today. Many of my fruits are caprified, but not all. I have brought some profichi around but not as much as last year (prior to last year a Smyrna type fig always dropped its fruit but it had a good crop last year after I brought profichi around). Before I brought profichi around, my Jurupa always had an amber pulp but now they are usually pink. I think this photo shows fairly well how fruits can be larger and have darker pulp when caprified. The taste of the cut samples was fairly similar, however.

    That's interesting to see such a dramatic color change. I would have thought they were two different varieties. I guess it's good that the flavor is consistent.

      See if seeds of each float, would document that effect for sure.

        I don't ever take the time to extract seeds, sorry. Not enough time in the day.

          Very interesting that they tasted the same.
