  • Chiappetta 2015 Main

    This is a third year tree placed in ground in April 2015. It is another of my
    trees that receives only about five hours of sun under high shade.

    This fig could have remained on the tree maybe another day. Because
    of much rain yesterday and more in the forecast today, it was part of my
    breakfast. It has a delicious, soothing sweet taste and maybe just a hint
    of melon, even cantaloupe. Needless to say it is very different and good.
    I gave it an 8 on a 1-10.

        Wills, that interesting since you have an earlier spring than I do and
        it doesnt get full sun here.

      Glad to hear that you liked it. This might be the first year that I don't get a ripe main crop. I screwed up this spring.

        Mine will have only a few more but I really like the taste. I may air layer
        to have a second tree and move something out of full sun and put it there.
        Thanks again Art.

      Looks good!

      Chiapetta? With a name like that I was expecting it to have tiny plants growing out of it!

        Lol. Look up Chiappetta olive oil. Chiappetta is the family name. The tree originates from the Cosenza area.

        So no relation to Chiapet? Or maybe the same family? Lol.

      I have passed this one around locally. This has been a reliable producer for me in north central Ohio. Too timid to plant in ground, but happy with performance in pots.
