  • First Ohra

    Very very good fig, tastes like a Melissi but no splitting. It is off season because the cuttings was rooted in February or so. Very vigorous plant and productive. Thanks, Andreas!

                  Thank you , all!
                  It appears to be a very good fig indeed.
                  I hope to find next summer if it is early/mid/late fig and if it is going to have any breba.

                    Beautiful fig Igor. Thanks for sharing. From the little research I did on it the ideal climate conditions for optimum fruiting and flavor of this fig is identical to the climate of the city of Loganville In the state of GA!! Oh wait a minute ..... I live in Loganville darn it. Now that is what I call a coincidence my friend. If only I could get my hands on a cutting or two!!!

                      Lol. It grows right next to the other fig and they both kinda happy partying ignoring the winter but many leaves are yellow already so I think mid January ?

                      thanks for the good words on Ohra Tabahanosika Igor.
                      i know you are a hard man to please lol
                      the fig is very productive and will get ripe from early August for me,
                      but it should be sooner for you.

                        Hi.. been following this forum and I find it really interesting for a newbie like me. Just a quick question on this Ohra.. I have one of this. Just wanted to find out if this variety needs the wasp? I have a friend with this variety too but his has dropped all the fruits during the first two maybe three years.. thanks.

                          if he told you it droped the fruit for 2 or 3 years he lied to you.
                          i introdused this fig to the forums and only started selling less than a year ago.
                          the bad thing is i dint know people were selling on facebook so i never watermarket my pictures.
                          many took my pictures and sold fakes.... after i found out a forum member gave me a link to add
                          watermark to my pictures...
                          sorry, but your friend has one of many fakes.

                        Good question, but I think Andreas only does common type figs. Maybe he will respond.

                          It is a good question which is hard to answer for me since all my figs are pollinated. We need to hear from somebody who is outside an area with the wasp.

                            Looks good, Igor. Mine should fruit next year.

                            If I think about it, I may cover some of my fruits of this and many other varieties with nylon "footies" to exclude the wasps to compare. However, even in the absence of such, not all of my fruits are caprified. I had demonstrated this with a comparison of different Jurupa figs in a photo posted on my Facebook page this past summer.

                              As I mentioned in some other posts, I am not sure I understand how the wasp works and pollination happens. Most figs from my 3rd crop are pollinated and they appeared in September. There were no profichis at that time but the seeds germinate just fine , it is a big mystery to me. But yes, try it, maybe your wasp is less persistent

                                I've had similar results and have talked to Francisco about this. I'm guessing that wasps might live a lot longer than what is stated in various writings and, perhaps, they emerge from profichi that have dropped from trees a month or two earlier.

                                I have a couple of caprifig trees adjacent to my farm but about 300 other fig trees and think that there are just too many fruits for them to all be pollinated unless I bring profichi into the branches of all trees. Maybe you have a higher proportion of wasps to fig fruits.

                              Really really nice. I like the way those deep red figs look.

                                My apologies. . Just check with my friend and he only has this variety for about a year.. but due to the climate here it fruited twice within the year and both times, all the figs dropped. Mine is coming up to eight months but still no fruits yet. Hoping to see some pretty soon. I really hope it doesn't need the wasp. Sorry for the misleading information. Thanks

                                    Such a beautiful fig. Andreas does list it as a "self pollinated fig" on the ebay listings. Can't wait to try it!
