Around Puget Sound, "Brunswick" (Breba crop) consistently ranks first in taste-tests.  Flavor and color of many varieties will vary from region to region based on growing conditions, and between the Breba and Main crops!

See my "I'll take the Whopper" post for the "Brunswick" Breba I picked on Sunday.

Linda,

"Desert King" is a green-skinned Fig.

Take a look at my website:  http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2
under the headings of Light Color Fig Photos and Figs on the Tree to see what "Desert King" should look like.

It's apparent Willis needs to get their act together!

The Fig I call "Vashon Violet" is a "Brunswick".

Despite great expectations, the word tonight is BUMMER :(

Due to the rain we had yesterday morning, the shade cloth I put up last Monday to keep the Starlings off it and my "Desert King" tree, picking it a day or two late, or possibly all three reasons, it juiced down last night and was spoiled this evening when I photographed it!  (See attached photo).

Please take the time to look at my website (link in the initial post).

Picked my largest Fig ever today!

100 mm long plus 15 mm stalk x 65 mm widest diameter and..........

a Whopping 190 grams :)

Too big for one person to eat it all ;) so I'll take an interior photo tomorrow before sharing it.

Another Fig that I can't identify, these photos were taken Friday at the University of Washington.  There weren't any ripe Figs on the tree but the interior was very interesting, especially the one "open" flower in the first photo!

Subject: Montlake Fig needs identification Replies: 4
Posted By: kiwibob Views: 839
 
When Little John was in town for Folklife Festival over Memorial Day weekend, he told me about two Fig trees in Seattle's Montlake Neighborhood.  I stopped by today and identified one as "Lattarula" but have no idea what this variety is.

The Figs shown are Brebas.  Leaves are both 3 & 5-lobed with 5-lobed appearing dominant.  The larger Fig (sliced) is 80mm (including a 20mm neck) x 48mm widest diameter and weighed about 70 grams.  The photo was taken using a 30.5cm (12 inch) square travertine stone tile for the background.  It was about one day shy of full ripeness but very sweet with good flavor.  The tree owner planted it about ten years ago but has forgotten the variety name.

Can anybody identify it?

Ammuni,

Assume nothing and rely on observation!  Vancouver is probably like Seattle where about a dozen varieties account for maybe 90% of the Figs grown in the area.

I suggest waiting until you see Figs ripening, ask the tree owner if you can taste one or two.  If the tree is productive and you like them, ask if the owner knows what variety they are.  Pick the variety you like best and get a tree if the owner is certain of the variety name (beware any claim of "Brown Turkey" as it likely isn't)!  If you find an "unknown" you really like, ask the owner for cuttings and start your own tree.

Happy Growing,

Ammuni,

I agree with Paully about Desert King.  See my website:

Of the four varieties you list in your post, NONE should be sold by any reputable nursery north of Portland Oregon!

Ira Condit considers this a 5-lobed leaf with basal lobes "auricled" in his "Fig Varieties: A Monograph" (Hilgardia, February 1955) which is downloadable as a PDF on the first page of my website:
http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2

It is interesting reading, but nearly impossible to identify any specific variety using his written descriptions.

Ottawan,

To answer your question, what do Chicago, Minneapolis, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec have in common?

They are ALL SOUTH of Seattle!

We have a temperate Maritime climate that is heavily influenced by Puget Sound.  Last year we set a record high temperature of 103°F and have about 0°F as our record low in Seattle.  Annual precip varies within the city limits from about 30-39 inches with an average of about 35 for the city as a whole.  Over half of our days have gray skies.  At my place in northeast Seattle a few blocks from the third highest city street intersection the first damaging frost occurs after mid-November, and the last before March 15 (April 15 about a mile away)!  We actually have a very long growing season, but hardly any heat.  As a result, ONLY the Breba crop will ripen here on most varieties :(

This year we are about two weeks behind our "normal" in blossoming of many plants including my Kiwis, so I expect the Brebas will ripen around mid-September or possibly later!  On the Olympic Peninsula at Sequim and Port Angeles they are typically 2-4 weeks behind us, so their Brebas might not even ripen this year.

The focus of The Puget Sound Regional Fig Variety Test is therefore on the San Pedro type Figs, and those Common type Figs that are known to produce a good Breba crop.  Our climate is the reason that all the Fig photos on my website http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2 with the exception of the Caprifig "Gillette" are of the Breba crop.

Again, I want to invite anyone with a good size Fig collection to download the Fig Variety Photo ID Proposal in Word.doc format from my website, and to consider contributing Breba and Main crop photos to the project.

Enjoy,   kiwibob

Anna & Rufous stopped by my place on May 21, enjoying the Fig trees.  These photos were taken less than four minutes apart but it wasn't until over a week later when they were downloaded to my computer that I realized both species that grace Western Washington had visited that day!

In early June after unwinding from Folklife Festival, Forum member Little John stopped by and we went Fig exploring in north Seattle.  The photo is of Little John at the Botany Greenhouse Fig tree.  When the Brebas ripen in August or September, I'll photograph the Figs and leaf hoping to be able to identify the variety.

Forum members with large Fig collections are welcome to photograph both their Brebas and Main crop Figs to add to a Fig Photo ID Database.  Please go to my website:  http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2  to download a copy of my Fig Photo ID proposal in Word.doc format.

Jon,

Nice theory, but from my perspective here in the "Pacific Northwet", it doesn't fly.

There is however something to be said for providing adequate water and nutrients all year to any fruit tree that you want to get optimum production from.

Mario,

How about taking some photos of your Excel and other figs in your collection to add to the Fig Variety Photographic Identification database proposed on my website?

See:   http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2   and download the Word.doc proposal that is linked there for some basic ideas of how to proceed.

Anybody with several known varieties is welcome to submit photos of both Breba and Main Crop figs/leaves for inclusion in the database.  My ability to do this alone is severely limited as all figs in my collection that have ripened fruit are already included on my website, and it only shows Brebas since Main Crop figs rarely if ever ripen here in Seattle :(

I hate to get on my Soap Box but this seems like as good of an opportunity as has come recently on this Forum with several current "guess this Fig" posts!

We can continue to play the guessing game, or we can build on Ira Condit's "Fig Varieties: A Monograph" (downloadable as a PDF from my website) by creating a Fig Variety Photographic Identification Database.  I maintain that a combination of Fig exterior, interior, eye, and dominant leaf form photograph is a much more reliable method than guessing what variety the Fig is from partial information or written descriptions.  A picture really is worth 1,000 words!

Please visit my website:  http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2
to download Condit's Monograph and my .doc proposal for creating the Photographic Database, as well as looking at the limited number of varieties that I have been able to photograph Brebas and leaves of.

If you have several varieties in your collection and want to help by contributing photos for the Database, let me know.  I'll post this same message on the other "Guess this Fig" posts to make sure everybody on this Forum sees it.

PS:  my "guess" given the partial information in the photos is they appear to be of the Breba crop, and may be "Desert King", but that's just a guess and more clear photographic information would be helpful.

Good question but the answer needs to come from someone nearby who grows Figs in your microclimate.  You might try reading Ira Condit's "Fig Varieties: A Monograph" which is downloadable as a PDF from my website:

http://sites.google.com/site/kiwifruitsalad2

Here in Seattle, we only get Brebas to ripen in normal years but few if any Main crop Figs due to lack of heat.  "Desert King" is the Breba workhorse for quantity, but you might prefer other varieties for flavor and sacrifice quantity to get flavor.

Ira Condit lists "Khurtmani" as a synonym for "Brunswick" (p. 417) and for "Mwazi" (p. 419) in his 1955 Hilgardia publication "Fig Varieties: A Monograph" which is available as a PDF download from my website.  Condit lists "Mwazi" as growing in Palestine.  For actual identification purposes, it would help to see leaf photos as "Brunswick" has a fairly distinct leaf form.

The attached leaf photo is from a Fig tree in my neighborhood.  I've watched it over about the past 7 years and it has never produced a single Breba crop Fig, and until this year, never a Main crop Fig!  In late September there were a few small Figs about 1.5 inches long and one of them was starting to get a dark brown stripe coloration on the skin at the apex.  A neighbor told me that the owners picked their first-ever soft Figs this year from the tree.

The photo is cropped to about 17 inches square, so the leaf is almost fit to wear ;)  Those two shiny spots are quarters, and the leaf is of the dominant form on this tree with some leaves larger and many leaves closer to 2/3 this size.

Does anyone know of a Fig variety that meets this sketchy description?  Although it isn't a variety suitable for Fig production here in Seattle, those wearable leaves sure look interesting.

Here is a pic showing the interior color that I didn't post the first time just to see what folks would say.  It is a Main crop Fig growing in Tigard, Oregon photographed October 9, 2009.  The tree usually doesn't produce many Brebas.  It has both 3 & 5-lobed leaves but the 3-lobed is the dominant form.  The photo is cropped to about 12 inches square to fit my standard Fig Photographing methodology.

Jon,

The leaf looks halfway between the "Negronne" and "Petit Negri" leaves on my website under Dark Colored Figs.  Todd K. from NAFEX thinks the two varieties are the same, but my trees have different growth habits, the leaves of "Negronne" are much rougher & leathery than "Petit Negri", and the sliced Brebas of "Negronne" have violet tinged meat while "Petit Negri" doesn't.

I've posted a downloadable Microsoft Word.doc of my Fig Variety Photo Identification Proposal on the website as well as a downloadable PDF of Ira Condit's "Fig Varieties: A Monograph" for anyone interested in expanding on Condit's work using the Internet and digital photography tools we have today.

What are the chances of getting you to update the link to my new website instead of the expired one currently on your Figs4Fun website?

Sorry about the problem.  Geocities measures the bandwidth usage and when the allocated capacity is exceeded in a given time span, they shut down access to the website.  It's happened to me several times while updating the website.  If you wait 12-24 hours and try again, it usually works.  I can e-mail copies in MS Word.doc format that include the photos on my website and the draft of the Fig Variety Photo ID System proposal if you send me an e-mail requesting them.

In 2007 the online version of "California Agriculture" posted a PDF I made of Ira Condit's 1955 "Hilgardia" publication "Fig Varieties: A Monograph".  I am interested in furthering Condit's work by creating a Fig Variety Photographic Identification System that is intended to be accessible to anyone wanting to identify an unknown Fig Variety.

Please visit pages 3-5 of my website to see the format I'm looking for and contact me if you are interested in contributing photos to include in the database:

I'm starting with the Breba crop as it is the only crop that ripens here in Seattle, but the Photo ID database should include Main crop photos as well in order to be a useful tool.
