  • Still eating figs in zone 7...

    ....only because I've been rolling a wagon of potted trees in and out of the garage.
    Pictured is a Preto and two De La Senyora figs. Despite the cooler temps, they were great! Preto normally has more syrup in the middle, but it was still very good. DLS was also great. A couple more are almost done ripening, and that will be a wrap for 2015.
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 2 photos.

    The ol' fig shuffle eh Frank. I'm glad you are still able to have a taste.

          Picked a couple Figo Preto this week, not fully sweet but great taste, not least for ripening nearly a full month after leaf drop. Had a sweet Marseilles Black yesterday, also long after most leaf drop. Both cultivars in pots.

            Looks great! How long does Preto usually fruit for you?

              Preto needs a long season, so it starts with the others and finishes by September/October in warmer climates.
