You have 100 potted figs you move in/out every year? My wife thinks I’m crazy for having 6 citrus in the garage last winter wait till I tell her about you!
Yesterday I picked some figs from an unknown, ripens early, has a reddish interior. More like a honey fig. I like them. I just snapped a shot of the figs, not the interior. Already dried and stored.
These looking very delicious! I am sure taste very good too.
Yes, I like them, the color is accurate too, I wondered if my camera would capture it, and it did.
I also harvested a bunch of Teramo Unk. which also is very early for me. I don’t have any photos of ripe figs. This one is about 3-4 days away from being ripe.
Here is my granddaughter eating a HC fig, she says they taste like watermelon and strawberry mixed, lol
Unk Pastilliere ripened a fig without pollination (looks like 2 will ripen out of ~50), totally different than the ones I hand pollinated last year, not much berry flavor, tasted just OK.
I have a similar situation second year in a row all figs dropped but just one is holding on. Lets see if it will ripe.

I like this one more than I expected. It’s a honey fig with some butterscotch flavor going on. Nice and syrupy. It’s also early and prolific. I’d say it’s a good fig for northern growers to have.

These are from my overwintered in-ground. I guess it’s an EBT, but it’s a mid-season maincropper. Pulp seems a little denser, drier than most figs I’ve tried so far (of course, our very dry weather at present may have had something to do with this) and it has a nice sweetness, though seems sweeter in the finish. Bet it would make a great drying or preserves fig, and it’s good fresh, too. I know this is a very common cultivar, but I think it probably deserves more love than it gets. My young in-ground set a good crop and more are swelling every day. Seems to have real potential as a zone 6/7 workhorse. The overwintered in-ground was actually close behind the potted ones in ripening; got the first of the latter on 9/10.
Adriatic JH Very good and underrated fig. Just make sure you pick at right time.

I agree, I think it is one of the best for our area and tastes very different than other good ones like CH.
Looks wonderful, Drew. Have more photos of this one?
Those photos are very recent. The figs shown are still not ripe. I will take more when I’m back in town.
