  • yellow or gold skin with dark red pulp

    There seems to be an endless number of figs with striking green skin and striking red pulp. I assume that a large part of the beauty of these figs comes from the skin to pulp color contrast. Does anyone grow any figs that have consistently bright yellow skin with dark red pulp?

    I'm asking about non-caprified figs, since the wasp seems to darken pulp in ways that non-wasp growers cannot achieve. Some figs with enough sun exposure can sometimes lighten skin from green to yellow with a red pulp, like White Triana. However are there any figs that are consistently yellow-red without caprification? The many figs with consistent yellow or gold skin tend to have the amber or even gold center.

    One partial exception is Brooklyn White, which as I've grown it has yellow skin with light red pulp, but it is light red not dark red or deep red and can be mixed with a translucent gel, a very good flavor and nice look but not the dark red pulp of the many green-red figs.

    Curiously, the Brooklyn White brebas tend to appear light green to me, rather than yellow, and if anything have a slightly darker red pulp; whereas, the yellow main crop (sometimes green tinged) tends to have a slightly lighter red or red translucent shade. (Brooklyn White has a sweet full flavor breba though the main crop is sweeter yet.)

    Bunch of green-red figs and Brooklyn White photos attached. Looking for the most brilliant yellow-red, non-caprified cultivar. And hopefully an early ripener.

      Sefrawi, a Syrian variety. Looks good. I wonder if it ripens early.

          This is a fig i found next to a flood control basin in Southern California. It was definitely planted by animal droppings....probably birds.....i call it my California Hybrid fig( it doesn't have a name yet). I took cuttings and grew them in Arizona....hoping that it didnt need the wasp....and it fruited this summer and those were pictures i took of it.

            So it's a new variety. How does it taste, and how early does it ripen compared to other known varieties? Is it a yellowish fig that sometimes has reddish stripes? The first fig in the original photo appears to look something like that.

            The figs ripen yellow with a reddish/purple blush on the outside. It was a cutting that was started in Dec. or Jan.... so its about a year old ...i got 5 figs from it this past summer. Its a very sweet fig, honestly its hard to describe.....it has a slight melon flavor to it.... I've only tasted about a dozen varieties and it doesn't quite taste like the others. I'm pretty new to figs, been growing for about a year and a half so its hard for me to describe it. It ripened about the same time as my JH Adriatic if that makes sense.

          Not my picture although i do have this variety but it didn't fruit last year.

              Here is a picture of my reverse? Panache I was trying to identify. My fig is the one in the middle with a Panache below and a White Genoa above.

              When fully ripe it is even yellower than in the photo. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the interior, but the flesh is red. Not dark purple red like my Violet de Bordeaux but definitely darker than amber. I really like the taste of this one. Probably the favorite of my three fruiting trees. It is bright and fresh and berry tasting. Not jammy tasting like the VdB. I am really happy with it. I just bought another Panache so I can compare the taste in a year or two to see if it is really a reverse Panache. If not then I guess I will have to just keep eating the figs and go Mmmmmm.

                Update on this topic of yellow skin figs with red pulp: after sorting through photos of skin and pulp from this summer, it seems I've fruited only one variety of fig with more or less consistently yellow skin and red pulp - Brooklyn White - not the deepest red and not the brightest yellow but often solid red and solid yellow.

                Pictured at link, 11 yellow/gold skin varieties - 10 with gold pulp and 1 with red - plus 15 dark or light green skin varieties mainly with red pulp, though some with mixed golden-red or golden: https://mountainfigs.net/2017/01/23/...ght-skin-figs/ Brooklyn White skin is second from the top on the right in the link above.

                3 photos of Brooklyn White below, plus 4 photos of Brooklyn White and Lemon/Blanche for comparison of the typically gold/red variety to a gold/gold variety. Brooklyn White has a honey-berry flavor, while Lemon/Blanche has a honey flavor.

                I have one I call "Unk Major Houlihan" in my personel records only and not naming it. It was a lost label on rooting and had a list of potential suspects but have not determined which it may be yet. I has been sugessted Chico strawberry/saratoga, but I have never even tried to root that knowingly I posted on it on below topic.

                      I looked up that post Tony. Looks nice I see they were calling that Chico Strawberry as well. Personally I hope Ritchie keeps his name as an unknown. It might be Chico but it may not, but that's not my call.

                      Phil... yes I saw where the name Chico Strawberry was mentioned but I didn't know that was a consensus... I will leave the label on the cuttings in cups as "Nola Pink Eyed Lady UNK" for now...:-) I hate switching boats in mid stream....

                        Looks like Sister Madeline's Unk Yellow (Italian?) She called it her Italian fig once but the next time she said her parents grew it when she was a child and didn't know where it came from but her mother was Italian, so I'm not sure. The early main crop are nearly big as tennis balls on her tree but get smaller as the season ends. It's the best tasting yellow fig I've tried.

                        Top tasting Col de Dame Blanc UCD is consistently yellowish when ripe. Its red interior is probably one of the deepests you'll ever find on a light colored fig. If you close your eyes, you would never guess that you're eating a yellow fig. That's how intense the berry flavor is.
                        The only issue with this variety is that it is not as hardy as I would like it to be as the tree keeps getting trimmed by the cold each winter season as I leave it unprotected. In addition planting it in clay soil has not helped its growth so far.
                        This is a late variety and is one of the lastest varieties to ripen in late fall here in Texas.

                          A lot of good information in this thread, ongoing, but notice all the southern locations. Seems more difficult to get the yellow skin color from most red pulp varieties the farther north one gets. Will be interesting to see how much Brooklyn White can be yellow and be challenged, and how far north, in side by side comparisons.
