Subject: Turkish Violetta? Replies: 6
Posted By: pyxistort Views: 681
 
Rafed, if it is Tacoma Violette, that would be great.  I will check with that person for more information for this variety. 

Nichole, I don't know there are many figs in that area, I should move there. Or I should start giving fig trees to neighbors...  I know there are at least two other neighbors growing figs.

Barry, Every fig looks so good.  How many fig trees do you have to produce so many figs everyday?  How old are your trees?

I did a little bit research and that name did not show up.  A local grower sells some fresh dark figs and he calls it Turkish Violetta.  Maybe I should meet with him and take some pictures for ID. 

Nichole, I wish there is such kind of neighborhoods in our area.  Maybe your back yard in the future?  :)

Any one heard of Turkish Violetta?  It is a dark fig growing in Seattle area.  Is it another name of brown turkey?

Congratulation.  It is great to harvest figs from your own tree.  Hardy Chicago looks good.  I heard it was not doing well in my area, but I think I should try it to see it myself.

Here are the photos as promised. 

Sierra is pretty ripe, but Mission can be picked one or two days later.  If there is an option, I would prefer to pick some tree ripe figs. However, these are pretty good when there is nothing else to compare to. 

Guess who is the winner?  I prefer Sierra than Mission.

I am so excited to see fresh figs available in Wholefood.  There are Brown Turkey, Sierra, and Mission.  Since I am not sure if I will have any ripe figs from my trees this year, I decided to get Sierra and Mission.  Photos will be followed.  Can't wait to try it later!!!

Update on this fig.  I checked on the breba today, and the skin is still very firm.  I will go back to check on it another one or two weeks.

Thank you for great fig garden pictures.  That give me an idea to plant some fig at a sunny slope.  How do you keep it dry out quickly at the slope?

Marius,
Just noticed one thing in pictures.  You place fig trees next to grass/plants.  Is there a reason, like keep root cool, or you just happen to move those there?  Just curious.

It is surprise to see that gorgeous hydrangea bush in your new garden.  You must have it for few years.  There is always room to plant something.  Maybe edible ground cover, like Rubus nepalensis?  :)

Thank you for a really generous forum member to send me these Unknown Spain cuttings.  These are supposed to be varieties from many locations in Spain, so let hope I can find some interesting varieties.

Finally, it feels like real summer here, and what a wonderful weather to find a good looking unknown fig.  I have been driving pass by this tree many times, and I just did not get a chance to stop by.  When I drove by this tree today, I saw the homeowner working in the yard.  I went back and talked to him about this unknown fig.  

To my surprise, he does not eat figs at all, and he just likes how the tree looks in the garden.  I get to go back to harvest figs whenever I want, and have some cutting when he prunes the tree.  

He doesn't know what kind of fig that is.  He remembers it is a dark color fig, but he doesn't know what color it is inside (he has never tried it).  Can you tell what kind of fig it is from the pictures?  There are brebas and main crops.  I will try to go back few weeks later to check on the brebas.

Those early figs are looking so good.  I really envy everyone who can harvest figs this early.  

When was Tacoma Violet figlet starting showing up?  What was the average day time temperature during that period?

Hi Suzi,
You may want to try covering soil surface with a layer of sand.  It works for many people.  :)

Nichole,
The Nonnie's fig was from a lady in Seattle area few years ago.  She post some pictures and the story of the fig on the other forum.  Here are the posts:

I am surprised to find main crops from CA Brown Turkey and Unknown Nonnie's fig.  The CA BT was from UCD.  The Unknown Nonnie's was supposed to come from Southern Italy and grows really well in Seattle area.  Not sure if there is enough time for these figs to ripe before it starts getting cold and rainy.

Herman,

Thank you for sharing the information.  It is great to learn the different stage of fig development. 

For the Malta Black, is it going to perform well in mild summer weather, average high is only 76 degree.  Thanks!

This is the first breba I have ever had, and I don't know if I will be able to taste it in next few months.  There is no sign of main crop, yet.  This summer is not warm enough and it is only about 54F today.   What should I do?
