  • i258 and Lampeira Preta main

    2 exceptionally good figs! Juicy, sweet, rich tasting. The skin in both was not very edible, more like a hard shell.
    Young potted plants, I am excited to see the quality improving in the next few years.

    The Lampeira is very productive and bares over a long time (~2 months).
    The i258 is not that dynamic, it has been sitting with 2 figs for a long time before they started to change color.

    Both pollinated.
    Enjoy!

        Beautiful figs. Looks like they could have ripened a little more. Some figs seem to be best when they just start to shrivel on the vine.

          Jerry,
          With our 100F and above dry heat wave, the figs are drying up on the trees within a day. What you see on the photos, are properly and fully ripe figs, already starting to shrivel that is a bit hard to tell because of the flash.
          I think the colors of the pollinated figs might be slightly different than what you used to see in your garden.

            I lost most of my Strawberry Verte figs in this heat, as well as a number of other figs on trees. They just collapse in the heat or cook and burn before ripening. The leaves are bronzing, yellowing, browning, with one even developing red veins around curled leaves. The trees in the ground are taking a beating, where as the ones in pots that I was able to move to afternoon shade are thriving. This heat is something else.

          Just picked my last i258, I wanted to leave it for as long as I could before tasting a dead ripe fig.
          It was worth it, the void was filled with syrup and flavor was outstanding. I wish the tree was more productive to enjoy more figs like that
