I bought this plant in May. I believe it set figs after I got it not before. One just ripened at 54g.

To answer three questions in one: Bass' Favorite Fig.

That doesn't tell you what it is just what Bass named it. I don't know where he comes up with all these figs but he must have dozens if not hundreds of contacts here, there, and everywhere...lol

I dried this one some before I ate it. Next one I'll taste fresh. On a young vigorous tree I don't expect much.

Looks absolutely great! I think and hope this is the Bass's Favorite that I ordered a rooted plant from James; I think that he also mentioned in an update it was a difficult rooter... Something to look forward to if that is the same variety...

I'm not sure about the eye. But it wasn't moldy inside like the open eye types often do. I'll pay better attention if any more ripen.

Well it's not his first, maybe his 20th he has named, and they all rock hard! Excellent finds by Mr. Bass. If you approach his record I would have no problems. None of his unknowns are anything we saw before. Like Brooklyn White, Brooklyn Dark, Macool to name a very few he has named.

I agree. If it is his favorite and he's pretty sure it's not something else already in the fig community, then he's earned the right to name it. If it turns out to be something else well known by another name his rep will take a hit.

Looks gorgeous!!  I must say that the fruit and leaves look somewhat familiar. . . perhaps a close relative to BM/Preto? I am wondering about its hardiness and ripening schedule.  Any info to share on that?

A lot of people put emphasis on popular/exotic cultivars, which is great because it highlights some of the better fig varieties; however, I am most interested in the figs our members love regardless of pedigree. 
Currently Growing: a bunch of varieties.

It does seem somewhat similar to Preto/BM. But I think the fruit isn't as flattened on the bottom.

I just bought the plant in May. So I don't know anything about hardiness. I do believe the fruits all formed after I bought the tree. So it may ripen earlier than Preto but again not sure at this point.
