  • Unk and regular Pastilliere

    UP, pollinated, Smyrna. A bing cherry in a shape of a fig!
    The best tasting fig I have. Does not drop when caprified, very productive tree.

    A regular Pastilliere, pollinated. Also a very good fig but the taste is more of a strawberry. It dropped a few first figs earlier in the season but kept the later figs.

                Beautiful looking fig. I have two first year UP plants with one fig developing. Can't wait to try it.

                  Mara,
                  They love sun and water! This is one of the varieties that is great for our desert climate. Just make sure the birds and raccoons with squirrels do not know that
