Craven’s Craving figs are now ripe. Awesome as usual. I left one on to give it another day or two. See how ripe I like them. More coming too.
Caprified? Is this a brown turkey strain?
First year of growing figs, so my knowledge is limited I don’t think this is caprified. My brown turkey planted in spring produced a couple of small figs with mild flavor and almost no seed crunch. Black Jack is a dwarf variety which produced jumbo figs with nice berry flavor and decent seed crunch.
That’s amazing! How was the taste?

its quite good with mild berry flavor. Sweetness increases a lot with deficit irrigation. It ticks many boxes - good taste, productive, large sized figs and a dwarf tree with vigorous spreading growth. Can easily be tucked in tight spaces of the yard and pruned every year to maintain the size. Breba had a interesting melon flavor but the main crop (after deficit irrigation) was much sweeter.
Preto, I waited many years to eat this one since my plant sat still for a long time. It was worth the wait!
Sweet Joy, a nice sugar fig.
I agree with you this is my favorite fig this year. I had these today and wow
More dried and ugly they look will taste better.

Wow those are nice looking figs. I can’t grow them any better in my GH. And I agree about Preto and it’s siblings. They are superb figs.
Cravens Craving most sought after fig and has a good size and very good quality.
