Guess the fruit


Kind of a trick here, but can anyone guess this fruit?


An unripe fig? Mostly skin, with little center. And unripe, so plenty of white latex leaking out…


Same guess as Bob’s.


Milky liquid and that center I’ve got to go with Bob and Matt on this one.


Hmmm. Guess that was easier than I thought.

It’s from a local unknown fig that I took cuttings of and planted this spring. It formed a few fruits that didn’t ripen in time. I wanted to see what color the inside would be. I’m hoping it has good flavor since it’s growing on the west side of a house just outside Boston and doesn’t seem to suffer much dieback.
