  • Maltese Beauty 2015 Main

    This is a third year tree in a ten gallon pot and the first time to ripen any figs.

    This fig was perfectly sweet and another one of those that we are having a difficult
    time describing the flavors. It was mostly honey but something else that we may
    can put a finger on if it will give us a few more figs. The skin was slightly chewy and
    had a separate flavor from the pulp which was also very good. It was very
    smooth with no seed crunch. It has about 20 or so that may give us a chance. Even
    though we can not give a flavor profile we rated it an 8 on a 1-10. This could be an
    excellent fig.

                  It doesn’t but benefits from the pollination
