I will get this added to "Start Here" as well.

They reflect the first time they ripened - not not for how long afterward.

Jon,

I'm curious to know how the Catanzaro #3 tasted like?

Jon, we all need to follow your lead, but since we all live in different zones, Fig XXX may ripen for you in July, and for NoName in September.  I will add that feature to my already overwhelming spreadsheet, and will make an honest effort to update it!  I do think you need to put your zone in that ripening thing.  We have members all over the world in many different planting zones, so I think the zone is sort of an equalizer, right?

This particular list, for 2012, is not a good gauge for when a fig normally ripens. Some were early because of a warm winter and spring. Others were late because of cold weather in June and again in August.

The point of this list, and the ones from prior years (which i hope to complete soon) is to show their relative order, not there absolute time of ripening. This, it is hoped, will help people in any climate to judge which varieties are earliest, mid season and later, so that they can judge what my bed suitable for their short, medium, or long season climate. If it ripened in October for me, it probably would not work well in a more northern, shorter season climate, unless hotter, more consistent summer heat (at some locations) is able to overcome my greater length of season.

In short, it is all relative, not absolute. As more people add such data to the "Ripening order" thread under "Start here", the more data people have to figure out what might work at their particular climate and location.

I have never grown figs in Utah or Ohio or Rhode Island, so I no data for those kinds of locations. That is where the "community" aspect of the Forum comes into play.

The rest of October may have had less figs ripen, or they were more the the same. Again the point was not to show what ripened in a given week, but to show the week in which a variety first ripened. For instance, if you look at this year, and the previous years, Atreano OR is always the first to ripen, or one of the earliest to do so. having data over several years, gives you some certainty that it will continue to perform that was. This year (2012) it was interesting to see how close in ripening time almost all of the Celestes were. They have been more spread out in previous years.

Jon, Thank you for your data.  It is really useful information before any user from PNW can contribute more data just for our area.  I really appreciate you sharing it.

This is great info Jon. I'm gonna load this data into my database. Now I need to get a download from the national weather service of the average temps for each week by year and zip.

looking back, i took my first Paradiso Gene on July 25th last year. that's much earlier than sometime in Nov. in 2011. it also set second flush of main crop soon after which didn't ripen till Oct. we had heat spell in spring here. that might have triggered something. but first flush was amazing. second flush was more like the 2011.. strong melon taste.

Jon, my in ground LSU Purple's main crop started ripening a full 2 months before yours.  What do you make of that?  Would I be able to extrapolate to other varieties to some degree?
