  • Sals Corleone 2015 Main

    This tree was placed in ground April 2014 and died back to the ground
    this past winter. It receives about five hours of sun per day and has
    grown to about five feet tall and has many green figs yet to ripen.

    This fig has a very pleasing melon and a hint of berry in a jelly like
    center. It is not overly sweet and has no seed crunch. It is about six
    weeks later than the first fig last year. Probably due to the lack of
    sun and that it died to the ground. It is a very good fig and it did not
    split from all the rain unlike many others are doing. We gave this fig
    an 8 on a 1-10 just like last year.

      5 years ago this was the fig folks would trade their 1st born for.

      Nice fig! And I too remember this was a hot fig, even in 2012.

        Nice fig Mike. If you can get one that ripens in dry hot weather, this one is hard to beat.

          Sounds like it will be a great fig for Southern California

        Nice! It's not as popular as it once was, that's for sure.

            That fig looks so delicious. Is it similar or the same as pane e vino dark?

              Adam, here are pics of my Pane e Vino Dark this year and what
              I said about it.

              "This fig is quiet different in appearance on the inside from most of my
              dark figs. It has very little red coloring. Whether it is due to the amount
              of sunlight it receives, I don't know. It has a very sweet honey flavor
              and the skin was thin without much flavor and no seed crunch.

                  Nice job Mike! Ironically, mine did not die back to the ground last year. And in previous years, when it rained, the figs would open up like a flower and sour. Not the case this year! This is the first year my tree did not split like previous years. And the figs were richer and sweeter this year. We've had very little rain of the summer. I know that's why they did not split. As for the reason it did not die back....it must me the brick wall providing it more heat over winter. I will have to winterize it this year and see how it does next year.
