Another great sampling night.

Some were small, but delicious. All of them. We like the unknown Green at the bottom, I wonder if this came from John (deerhunter?) 

Thank to all of you who help me build up my collection. I am in love with these figs...

Enjoy~CIMG1968.JPG  CIMG1969.JPG

Most of the young ones are in pots, but I am slowly planting them in the ground...

Igor,  Kiwibob does not believe it is Adriatic. This is a different fig than those I sent out. This is from a tree I bought at Wallingford, a neighbourhood of Seattle. This is a rather small, but brebas were HUGE.  It is very sweet and produces great crops... a keeper for me.

That's a really nice sampling from your trees Grasa. What was the standout for you? I remember you really liked your Hollier.

Great looking plate, Grasa.  I'm still harvesting too, but the cooler temps with lots of rain have made them not so tasty.

I like the hollier a lot, but the brebas were better than the main, perhas the tree had fewer fruits and sugar for all, as I allowed too many main figs on the tree, and the taste is very good but not as the first crop.  

If I was to grab one and run, I would take the RDB, for me that has been the most pleasant one.

You choose RDB which is good as I have just purchased two RDBs - the Ronde and the Rouge. Which one are you referring to?

Thank you
