This may be the king of all figs. Definitely hard to beat.

Don't know the weight, but nearly 2" in diameter. Has enough flavor for 3-4 large regular figs.

Harvested my first Black Madiera and Barnisotte figs today. Both were very good.
BM had a lot of honey oozing form the from the eye, but I think Barnisotte was the
better tasting.

P.S. My wife just ate the two halves and she agreed that both were good, but thought
that the Black Madiera was the better one...

Well, they are both very good, but your wife obviously has the more refined tastebuds. ;-))

Jon,

Off this fig topic.
Remember the one you and I sampled last year at your place that was dark and red inside and tasted like a Peach?

I know you said you had it for several years and it was the first time to sampled it. Did it produce more figs this year? Are you making this available anytime soon?

Put me down for one if this is the case.
