This is an unknown that I got in Nov '09 from a local gardener. Most everyone around here knows him as "Farmer Don" because of the huge garden he always tends right out next to a main road.Any thoughts?
He's been growing this fig for years. He brought it with him years ago when he moved from Lousiana. He mentioned once that he thought it might be Texas Everbearing - ?
This is the first time I've seen fresh ripe fruit from it. My first guess would have been Celeste but I'm just not sure being relatively new to growing figs my self.
The flavor was quite sweet and juicey but not super juicey. One of the better figs I've tasted so far.
I'll try to get pics of the tree with the fruit on it for next time I post.
