  • Fig harvest pics!

    I haven't been active on the forum in awhile as I am dealing with selling a house, buying a house and moving from Delaware to Texas!

    So I figured I would post pics of the variety of figs I was able to harvest this year. They were all delicious in their own unique ways!

    Two posts for the photos...

    (Edit: for some reason they did not post in the order that I loaded them... sorry.)

            Yes the paradiso has a lot of figs on it. They are big and delicious. The only issues with them are cracking after a rain and large ants getting inside the open eye and souring them. I had small ants, but some Tero takes care of them. For some reason the large ants don't go for the Tero. Thanks for a great tree!

                    Thanks for sharing the photos.
                    Good luck with the move.
                    IMO, its been a good year for fig trees in the NE, it was a warm wet spring / early summer and a relatively dry summer.

                        Congratulations on getting to try a bunch of new figs.
                        I find it interesting that I only see tan mantis in the fall. I wonder if they change color or were always tan. I'm guessing they change with the cooler temps or length of day.

                          They start out green and turn tan/brown towards the end of the season, which is also the end of their life cycle.
