    Calvert is a nice fig That I never see much posted about. Very similar in taste to other green figs with the deep red center

    There has been a flush of cultivars discussed recently that in the nearly three years I've been playing I've never heard of. Perhaps one day I will collect them all!

        Actually I would prefer you not use my Pics. I could go into detail but I doubt you would care for my answer.

        How is Calvert different from Adriatic(JH) or Strawberry Verte? I seem to recall someone posting that it was late. Can those of you growing Calvert chime in in this?

          Calverte has ripened as early as August 25 here in pot. I think this fig is in circulation as synonyms but anyone's guess as to which synonyms those might be exactly. Tough to distinguish from Paradiso GM-9, Paradiso Bronze, and Battaglia Green here.

        Ed,

        It's very similar to those figs, which in my opinion makes it a very good fig, but if you are limited on space and already growing similar probably would not be a must have. Here are my 1st fig ripen dates from 2016 for Calvert and a couple similar figs, They are not not all same year in ground so just a rough estimate. Calvert and Bataglia green have been slower growing with less vigor than the other 2, and believe others have noted that on Calvert. I am not sure why on my Bataglia green, many seem to favor it. For me Adratic JH and Strawberry Verte are more productive and healthy trees.

        Adratic JH 9/1/2016
        Bataglia green 9/10/2016
        Strawberry Verte 9/14/2016
        Calvert 9/18/2016

          Thanks Phil. It has been on my peripheral radar, good to know I don't "need" it
