    Wish list: @Your favorite fig and Black Ischia UCD, Zaffiro, Craven's Craving, Izmir/Iznot, Thermalito, Kesariani, Calderona

            Scott's Black is a really nice fig, good production and looks and taste great. Unfortunately seems to want to split for me here but it's still worth trying to get a few
            JLB zone 8b south Mississippi. Wish list really good figs thay don't split with all this dang humidity

              That is strange! I have it here and it is one of the few that will not split. Even through 20 days of continuous rain

              Mangoman last year was the first and only year I had fruit and it was a splitter. This year no fruit due to transplant set back it was in ground 8ft tall and I dug it up and potted it. But I'm not sure if splitting was from rains or the nightly humidity I would love to get good figs I really like this variety

            I’m just not sure what it is about your videos but I like watching them, maybe it’s that you spend a lot of time on the fruit characteristics after you half it. I watch everyone’s just for fun. Curious what personality puts out videos next! Great job

              Thanx. I just try to include what I would like to know. I feel like I sometimes miss some things. Are there additional characteristics I should be including?

              Lance I’m no expert. But I like to hear about eye which you cover. I like when people talk about skin taste and chewy or etc. Also I would to know if the taste lingers. Which I I have found with many of mine. Example black Madeira is just like a candy taste after a while. My rdb for some reason 5 seconds turns kinda of vegetable like. I have a one Celeste that makes my tongue sizzle. Weird I know. Wonder if anybody else gets these aftertaste.
