  • List of Fig varieties with Brebas and ripening order

    Searched for this but unable to find...

    Is there a source somewhere that lists all known figs with breba crops and their breba crop ripening order listed somewhere?

    Thanks.

        Not much breba ripening info here but some LSU recorded main crop ripening info, especially as relates to when Celeste ripens. I've found the ripening to be about 7 weeks later here in growing zone 6b than in the LSU zone:
        O'Rourke: ----- / Celeste minus 5-7 days for 15 days
        Celeste: ----- / "late June and July"
        Champagne: "about the same time as Celeste"
        Tiger: Celeste plus 5-7 days for 15 days
        Hardy Chicago: Celeste plus 5-7 days
        LSU Purple: "in July"
        Hunt: ----- / Celeste plus 10 days for about 2 weeks longer than Celeste
        Southeastern Brown Turkey: brebas Celeste minus 14 / Celeste plus 14-21
        Alma: ----- / Celeste plus 30 days "late July through August"

          Malcolm,

          I dont have the order they ripen in but most in your zone would probably ripen in July-August. Here in Seattle first taste of Brebas happen in July.

          -Ben

          The link has a big list on figs that have brebas, it's not complete but it's always evolving.

            binbin9,

            Awesome list! That webpage is a wonderful gardening resource. Here's a direct link to "The Ultimate Fig Breba List": http://seattlegardenfruit.blogspot.c...reba-list.html. I was able to fill in quite a number of Breba questions on my inventory list. Two that I have as providing brebas that I didn't see on your lists was Chiappetta (Cosenza) and Brooklyn Dark.

            I don't have experience yet with many brebas but last year I got one or more brebas on the following 2nd year trees: Black Triana and San Pietro (the purple San Pietro from Joe Morle), Pied de Boeuf, and Emerald Strawberry (name given to one of the numbers UCR figs, cant recall number and don't have those notes handy) This year, my young Susser Georg has some swelling brebas on it coinciding with the emergence of the leaves-I have heard that it produces them.

              Here's a couple of links that might give you more information on breba production.

                Here's what the Fig Variety DB (FVDB) currently shows:

                  Some varieties produce copious amounts ( Desert King, Grantham’s Royal). Others produce 1-2 breba on the entire tree. It would be wonderful if breba productivity was also indicated in the DB.

                    I agree this seems to me a very important factor. If you're growing for Breba/early crops, you want it to be somewhat prolific. Especially if you have limited growing/storage space. Would an in ground breba bearing tree its limbs need more protection than a regular main crop variety?
