  • Schar Israel ripe

    This is a new fig for me, unfortunately got spoiled inside so I do not know how it tastes. A large fruit with thin skin, productive. Anybody can share their experience?

    That is a shame Igor! Hopefully next season brings a lot to try.

      I was so hoping for a report on this one as it's on my want list. Shame it had to go bad.

        Sorry to disappoint you guys, the December ripening time is not ideal. The figs need heat, we have 70-80 during the day but the days are too short.

            Scott, I would need a green house for 6 weeks per year for some odd plants only. This is the SoCal, I would rather wait a little.

              Is it worth it for six weeks.... that is a personal decision. Could be fun to play with either way.

              I know.... I know..... I know... So Cal!!! LOL

              Some of the seeds did germinate by the way, and are growing nicely, I'll get to see them in a couple weeks.

              Schar Israel was quite good......it was in the top 5 of the new varieties (100 maybe) I put in this year. Growth rate was excellent and very productive.

                WillsC,

                When did it begin ripening in your zone? Do you have it in a greenhouse? Thanks.

                  When.......I have no idea It was planted March 1 of this year and is now 5 feet tall or so and multi branched. All of my figs are grown in the ground, well I do have a few in 30 gallon pots but everything is outside, only small potted plants are in the greenhouses.

                      It only gave me one fig this year as it is in its second leaf. It was actually pretty good. Hopefully I get some more next year.

                        That looks like a nice fig. I really like the shape and color if it.
