  • Enjoyed my last and only Fig on the tree before Frost hit.

    Had an enormously Large Col De Dame Blanc Fig last night, as I picked it in fear of Frost damaging it as our rare Socal Winter Lows have struck out of no where. This Fig was twice as big as the other CDDB's..assuming because it was the only one on the tree left receiving all the nutrients... I was expecting a watery, bland Fig as many of the ones I had have been so since the drop in temperatures....Wong! This was the best Sweet, delicious Fig of the year by Far and it broke my heart once I got to the last bite.... an overwhelming cloud of depression hung over me as I realized this was it....no more....all gone....

    At least the last one was delicious! Even knowing next year's harvest will be so much bigger doesn't make the next 6 months any more fruitful, eh?

      Glad it was a good one. I wonder if it will generally ripen well in the cold.
