  • Where are all the Yellow figs?

    I think my Mary Lane Seedless is extremely beautiful and I end up using it in a lot of photos, but I wish I had a few more really pretty yellow figs. Does anyone have or know of any other yellow varieties that are being grown? I've seen pictures of other yellow figs but have not seen them being grown. What I want is really clean looking attractive yellow figs. thx.

    LSU Gold, Golden Celeste / Champagne, 278-128, and Deanna come to mind. Also, Janice Kadota:

      I have lsu gold. I have many cuttings started if you like to trade? I have a few others champagne etc but only have enough for me but have lots of small lsu golds.

      I have Champagne and LSU Gold, which I have neglected in the past. Will look to take better care of these this year. More high quality dark figs are easier to grow than light figs, at least for those of us in marginal fig growing areas, so light figs sometimes get lower priority. Don't have any Janice cuttings to trade at the moment. Again, neglected it. Hopefully this year will be different.

    A very pretty fig. Some times with a slight red blush if the sun hits it.

      The Golfen Celeste I have is not yellow, it is brown.
      My Long Yellow is yellow. I also read that K-7-11 is a yellow fig too but I have not tasted it yet.

          I have a Lemon fig that produces huge yellow fruit. I was not very impressed with flavor, kinda bland.

            I have a 5 foot tall Lemon in a 15 gallon pot that is crazy productive and produces huge figs. Taste-wise I would not call it a desert fig but if you have some way of using the figs like preserves or stuffing them, etc. then it's a great tree.

            There are several versions of Lemon. Mine is very tasty and jammy, but it took 6-7 years for it to taste that good...

          Harvey sells a long neck yellow with a mild flavor that he likes. Unknown OC that I call hearty flavor and may eventually be called Encanto Honey tastes great. I think Unkn OC tastes better than any honey fig I've tried. If you let the sun shine on the figs of Panache they turn yellow. I love yellow figs, too and I'm sure I'll think of more, later.

                The pictures of Tashkent look like it is very yellow. I will see how it does this year as the plants are still small. They were started in late summer.

                  I just bought some Tashkent cuttings earlier this week, due to arrive next week. It looks to be a great fig.

                LSU Jack Lily and Yugo Yellow are yellow and excellent tasting. There's LSU Scott Yellow, Cajun Gold.

                    Ripens late here, after mid Oct

                  This variety came from Almost Eden, labeled Banana.
                  The photos on the website don't match my results, but maybe main crop is darker than Breba, which is all I've managed to ripen in Zone 6B. These Photos are from mid September.
                  The description of the plant's slow growth habit is spot on: It's been in a 5-gallon bucket for two years, and is slightly below 3' in height.
                  For my taste buds, it's a worthwhile variety even though main crop is too late. It has a good amount of seed crunch, more figgy flavored than expected, thin skinned and juicy. Not just a honey fig, it has a little something extra.

                  I just wanted to thank you all for posting. I was in a nasty accident (car) - all is OK but I kind of dropped off the map and hope you all didn't / don't think I'm rude for starting a thread then flaking out.

                    Glad you are OK Michael. My White Texas Everbearing in ground is very sweet fig @ 50g. This year 100's brebra that all aborted as usual for here. Main crop starts early August here in 8b. When crop is large will continue til November. Fig taste better with hot long days, not so good with cool short days.

                  Champagne, not a clean looking fig due to the sugar spots that develop when they are fully ripe, but definitely "Yellow".

                    Here's a nice yellow fig that I found unexpectedly yesterday evening at a new friends back yard/ farm. Yellow with a nice red center ,looks like Atreano to me but any guess is more than welcome. Productive and very healthy looking tree, we had a hard time finding a fully ripe fig since the birds( hundreds of them) grab them as soon as they start to droop. Excellent sweet flavor.

                        Long yellow, tastes like a ripe sweet cantaloupe, very juicy. 3 year old tree in a pot , pollinated.

                        My best yellow fig this year so far is Shiblawi. Very sweet and very large. It seems to be the ants favorite as well.
                        Cutting sales on willsfigs.com started Nov 1 and will continue till about March 1.

                        My Tashkent pleased me this year with great figs. It was the first productive year for this variety. Last year we had just couple, the rest was dropped. Now my tree is around 3 yo.
                        Long Yellow gave us quite a few figs for such a young plant
                        1-5 - Tashkent fig
                        6-8 - Long Yellow

                          It tasted very good honey-melony kind of taste, and I'm pretty sure it will be only improving as the tree is maturing. I tasted this variety in Uzbekistan...very yummy..this fruit can be even juicier and slightly larger
