  • Lyndhurst White.. Breba.. I believe lol

    I'm so excited to finally start doing this! Yippie! I picked this Lyndhurst White Breba (I believe it's a breba at leastπŸ˜‰) just yesterday and shared it with two of my kids... It was a bit over ripe so I accidentally ripped the neck off (I'm such an amateur I know lol).. It was still soooo good! My kids loved it too, in fact I will need to keep an eye out on them because they have since started eyeing up all the growing figs and asking "Hey ma, is this one ripe?" Lol!

      Thanks Bryant! It was delish.. I am seriously going to enjoy figuring out which figs are my fav this summer πŸ‘πŸΌ

    They are good when not waterlogged, no question. Can waterlog more easily than most. The somewhat wrinkled non-balloon skin on your LW might be a good indicator for flavor. I picked 4 mostly balloon-skinned LW brebas this year and they ranged from somewhat flavorful (with hints at much better) to much too watery. Last year I had main crop LW late in (drier) summer that was very good. Keeping it dry enough means I might better grow it away from the other trees

      That's a great tip Tony! Good thing I picked this one right before we had this fierce late day thunderstorm in that case.. It literally opened up the flood gates on us and my some of my potted figs were 6 inches under water in the backyard! I had to run out in my pancho to save them (I can only imagine what my neighbors think lol) But after tasting this one and now hearing your advice about avoiding waterlogging, I'd do the same exact thing over again! I think I need a cape for my pancho next time though πŸ˜‰ Lol

          Thanks Zuny! Before you know it you will be posting some pics of your own home-grown figs

        Tony is right on about to munch water. I have found it best to not water until I see some stress during fruiting.

        Thunderstorms are a different story. LOL

          Ohhh yah and this one sure was a doozy! Lol! I will have to really restrain myself from watering myself though.. I see thirsty plants everywhere these days, but for more yummy figs I will be sure to use the good ole moisture meter on all trees getting close to ripening time πŸ‘

        looks great, Jamie. thanks for sharing.

        Something, bird or other vermin got most of my brebas. Not real happy about that ...

          Thank you Rafael!!! Yippie!!! It's official! I learned my lesson on the value of waiting just a lil bit longer when I picked the only Frank's Salerno Breba I had maybe 2 days too soon.. It was still delicious, but I see now it could have been even better if I hung on a lil bit longer.. πŸ˜‰

        I picked my Lyndhurst White brebas a few days ago. They were pretty tasty. My trees are loaded with a good number of figs considering they are only second leaf. Lyndhurst White seems like a good workhorse fig.

          I totally agree with you Johnny, my potted LW has about 15 nice sized figs left on it. Not bad for a tree in its first leaf at all.. Im sure it will do even better next year! Definitely see it as attaining workhouse status here for me tooπŸ‘πŸ‘

          Hey if you get a chance can you post a pic of your next ripe LW fruit here too? I would love to see more pics of this fig

          I'll have to wait until the main crop to post a pic. My LW brebas were discovered in the fridge before I had a chance to break out the camera. They were already half eaten by the time I got back to them.
