Does anyone know what type of fig this is? They get pretty large and stay green when they are ripe. They seem to ripen out later than my other figs. My large fig is pretty much done producing for the year and this one is just starting.
Do we get to see the inside?
A lot of the Adriatic types stay green with red interior and do ripen late. Like JH Adriatic, Battaglia Green, Strawberry Verte, and about 10 others. So no, can’t tell you what it is specifically.
Thanks I was just curious. I’ll cut one open when they ripen.
What’s the story on this fig? Maybe you can pick a name and sell it on EBay!
It looks like the Adriatic types, the leaf pattern might help ID too, or at least eliminate some. I’m not an expert, so maybe someone could eventually tell what it is. Asking on the fig forums may be your best bet.
The fig was at the property when I bought it about 5 years ago. This tree is probably around 10 years old. I have been air layering several from my trees. My big tree has trunks over 6" in diameter.
Figs are much easier to identify when mostly to fully ripe and cut open. Size measurements when ripe. Some people even weigh them when ripe.
It looks like it could be Latterula because it is sort of rounded. If it is more yellow than pink inside, that might be it.
Looks like Green Ischia or something similar.
Thanks for the replies. It works out great once my main tree quits producing for the year this one starts. Right now I have 6 limbs air layered and I’m just waiting a couple more weeks to cut them off. I would like to get about a dozen different fig trees started. I already have about 3 dozen different fruit trees so when they all start producing I should have a lot of fruit.
I admire you would be happy with just two varieties, and clone them. I have 36 or so and can’t stop adding more. I need an intervention or something? I do plan to eliminate many at least I keep telling myself that as I add five more in upcoming fall trades.
I really don’t eat figs. I used to just let the birds have them all. Now my mother and several other people asked me to save them for them. I might get some more varieties later. I am at the intersection of a highway and major farm to market road so I might set up a fruit stand there later and start selling fruit
Sounds like a good idea. I like to dry them. Still experimenting with them. I have a number of stone fruit too. Most of my trees are about five years old some younger, some older. Enjoying tons of fruit these days.
