    Hunt
    aka

    Descriptions:
    This very cold tolerant clone produces large, long necked, violet-brown figs having amber pulp tinged strawberry over a long fruiting season. This is one of the best figs for home use since it is so dependable and bears a good crop of high quality fruit each year. This is one of our favorites here in Louisiana because it is well adapted to rainy areas such as are found in the South. It has a superb, sweet and rich flavor that reminds us of a larger and improved 'Celeste'. Bred by E. W. Hunt of Eatonton, Georgian in the 1920's. Fruit shape pyriform with short, distinct necks. The leaf has a subcordate base and 3 to 5 lobes.(2)

          All the pictures are beautiful and your figs look just luscious. You really should make a video of them and post it on YouTube. Do you know when I first started to grow figs this year there is not one Video of Hunt fig trees or figs or fig tastes on YouTube? I put in search hunt fig tree and all videos came up for hunting for fig trees or hunting for figs. You really need to post videos of your hunt figs.
