    Thank you Ross, how come is this one so underrated?

    Yeah apologies for bumping a thread that old but this variety is very underrated and the dried fruits are super delicious.

    😂 Oops. I didn’t notice the original post date and only saw the ones from yesterday. Thanks for the heads up
    I’m not even sure I knew what a fig WAS 4 years ago. 😝

    Eric I sold this tree 4 years ago. The only person I know of still growing it is a friend in Miami.

    Any chance you have a cutting? I’d love to try it. Let’s see how it does in fig paradise. :-)

    I wish Pajarero grew well in our climate, the dried figs are delicious.

    I haven't tried either variety, but an acquaintance in Spain sent me cuttings, but neither one
    took. He sent me a picture of one of the brebas, and they were almost as big as his hand.

    Are they dried or fresh? Where did you have a chance to try them, Ray?

    Have any of you guys ever tried the Spanish figs Pareires or Panadera?

    Mr M Pons did confirm this variety based on these pics.

    I know, Rafael - there is not much on it at all on the forums. I had some dried Pajarero figs that were wonderful, but the market I got them in (when visiting my son in Cincinnati) did not have them again. We discussed this a bit on a thread on F4F: http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox....post1279750505

    Sorry to hear they are not that great. Maybe another year would help? Maybe the heat of a Spanish summer would help? Maybe they just need dried. The small size, long ripening period and color all agree with what little I have heard on this variety.

    Ed I did start this early in the greenhouse yet it is ripening later than most. I reckon you are referring to the pajarera fig jam from Mitica. I am a huge fan of it and consider it one of the best preserved fig products on the planet. Whatever they do to those figs, a fresh pajarera is a far cry. There is no way for me to know A. Whether Encanto sent me a mistaken cutting (which they have done in the past); or B. Whether this compares favorably to any other Spanish database as no other internet collector than myself seems to have posted on this cultivar.

    Did you get this one started early in greenhouse to get it ripe this soon?
    Do you think it is more suited to hotter climate, or just an average fig made better by drying it? And more suited to drying that fresh eating? I was just curious, as this is the dried fig variety that got me interested in figs as a hobby/passion.

    started a topic Pajarera

    Pajarera

    This is a small fig, very long ripening period, 100 days at least. From Cartagena, Spain. Cutting obtained from Encanto Farms. Used for drying in Spain.

    I was not terribly impressed and will probably gift this tree away.
