  • First Fig of 2016

    Well, I didn't have to wait long for my first fig of 2016. Went out and found this Zingarella. It is kind of smooshed in the picture because my 2 year old said it was ready to eat and grabbed/squeezed it. It was good looking, but pretty bland, but then I don't expect a lot out of figs that ripen this time of year.

    It is supposed to be a good one, so I will reserve judgement until I eat some summer figs.

        It's safe to say that I'm super jealous. I wish I had a fresh fig right now.

            It has been freakishly hot down in Florida this fall/winter. This year was our hottest year on record. As nice as that might sound to some of you right now, 85 and humid for darn near 12 months out of the year is not much fun. Although most of my fig trees are dormant, but a few are still growing.

            The nasty hot weather finally broke and it looks like we will get a cool stretch for a while, so this should send all my figs into dormancy.

              I'm curious....With temps that haven't gotten below 48F, how did your trees go dormant?

              Some of my trees didn't want to go to sleep with temps in the low 30s.

                Don - I am no expert, but I think dormancy is impacted by factors other than temp alone - like the shorter daylight hours and for us, lack of rain.

                  Is this a breba or early season fig, or a late fig from last season? Or is your climate so good there is no off season

                    This is a late fig from last season. I usually do have an off season - but this year it has been very warm.
