Its a great figs and quite productive in my climate.  But when the rains come, they suck water badly and open like a flower.  I'd bet if they were caprified, they would be extremely rich and probably almost black in color.

Nope RJ, I'm not a cyclist. But I do own a bike and stayed at a Holiday Inn last night. LOL!

This black fig might not be Black Ischia but it is pretty darn close. I does mostly resemble Negretta. The black figs are very sweet. Again, I'm glad to own 2 of these trees.

Sharon, I'm glad you were able to sample the white figs. I have 2 large trees. One does have a fig on but I may remove it. The owners of both trees don't know how to pick figs. They were picking them while they were still semi-hard but less sweet. Since both the white and the black are hardy to my area. I will plant one of each in the ground. Here are pic of my 2 white unknown fig trees from Concord.

JDS is correct here.  Your tree is root bound and not getting enough water.  Even though you may be watering it, the roots are over heating and loosing moisture.  It will continue to do that until you repot is into a larger pot.  The tree will live but not produce any figs.  Its a continuous cycle unless you give the tree more soil and water.  I wouldn't up size it to a 5 gallon bucket either!  Go bigger!  Good luck!

Enjoy the fruits of your labor Frank!  That is a perfectly ripe Stella!  Very nice job there!

Mine is in the ground and growing fine.  No figs this year on mine.  It did not water that much and I did not feed it much either.  But the ripe figs on my Hardy Chicago and Pananas Purple are out of this world amazing.  Next year, my Stella will be loaded.  This happens to mine every 2 years.

There is a Whte Texas Everbearing . I have one but the interior is yellow. UDC has one growing in their orchard. Yours might be called Spicewood. It is red inside like yours. It's very common in Texas. I have 2 of them. I think yours is Spicewood.

it's definitely not Kadota or Excel.  Excel is a sport from Kadota.  Both are high yellow figs when ripe.

Jamie, Pastiliere takes years before the tree realizes its not suppose to drop fruit.  But the figs are jet black and very juicy.  Make sure not to let the tree get root bound because its a very fast grower.  And again, they are very hardy.  In my picture above, that egg is a large egg!  So, the figs are large in size.

Steve they are all in huge 22g SWPs.  But they stay outside year around.  They will go in the ground this Fall.  They are super hardy and very prolific!

Over the years, I've had several BW fig trees.  One came from a guy in NY.  However, his tree was different from Bass's tree.  His has an open eye and isn't that sweet.  That was years ago.  His tree died since and now I have 2 of Bass's tree.  One is in a 10g pot and has figs on.  This Fall, it will be one of the few that I will plant in my orchard.  It definitely underrated and a keeper in my climate.

Sharon, the committee asked if I could bring some trees and ripe figs next year.  I told them I would try.

I really enjoyed the trip.  Next year, I will take my EZ-UP along with some tables and chairs.  I should have plenty of Pastilere, Hardy Chicago and Atreano figs to taste next year.  I'm planting about 20 trees this Fall.

Land prices are outrageous but Jackie and I are looking around for property there.  I took pictures of some trees.  I'll post them later this weekend.

Tony, I use to have 4 plus trees.  Now I think I have 2.  I gave several away years ago.  I gave one to Jon, our administrator.  This fig has a story which is why I am attracted to it.  It is a good tasting fig.  But, I've been doing a lot of traveling this year and haven't babied them like I wanted.  I almost killed mine.  I came home a few days ago and a rat had gotten inside the GH and some micro drippers were moved making some tree loose water.  I pulled out my tree and repotted it yesterday to a 10 gallon pot.  I will produce this year.  Its a really dark round fig.

VS commented in another post how this fig was different to the UCD strain.  The UCD strain is a green fig and beet red inside.  However, this one is one of my favorites.  I'm going back to Ocracoke in October and planning on taking a few friends some fig trees.  This might be one of them.  I want to compare it to their Pound fig.

Willis Orchard and Aaron's nursery is bad for sending folks Celeste when they ordered something else. Kadota is a green fig that turns yellow when ropes with a deep rich honey flavor.

You asked a question where you will get a wide range of responses. It really depends on what works for you and how you prepare your pots. I would say try Bill's method and modify to your liking.

Me.? I don't cover the top of my trees. So, I use synthetic and organic. I use liquid and dry. I mix liquid fertilizer with water and pour it straight into the reservoir.

I started that thinking it was the same as Florea. After further analysis this year, the results is they are not the same. But Letizia is an excellent choice too.
