Looking good.
I have collected this unknown variety after noticing it growing in a Greek section of my town. The tree seems to be growing without any protection in winter. It produces early enough for our area, the fig were very tasty and I thought it would be worth the trial. I named it Black Bethlehem after the name of the town where the tree is.
I'm glad it did well for you JD.

The tree produced good figs last year and it was modestly productive. I hope to have more good figs to compare it to this year because MVSB, Bealle, Hardy Chicago, Sal's EL, Sal's Corelone, and others are promising to produce more than a handful of figs.

This one has been a beast of a grower for me.  Still no fruiting yet.  Tree is ~2-3 years old and trunk is thicker than a golfball in diameter.

Once I pinched the tips last year, it fruited.

This fig is good picked at almost any stage except under ripe. It has a flavor profile similar to Hardy Chicago but different and it is larger and juicer. I choose both.
