The first fig fruit!

Just want to report back that I finally harvest my first fig. I know many of you have had figs coming out of your ears while I only have this one fruit, it’s still very exciting for me😄

Here are the pictures

All this started 8-9 month ago from the cuttings from Kelby, thank you Kelby!

Hope these will ripe before weather gets cold.



It doesn’t matter if others have figs coming out their ears. It doesn’t even matter how good those other figs are. None of them will be eaten with any more pleasure than that first long awaited fruit that you grew yourself from the time it was nothing more than pruned off stick that could have otherwise been compost.

Do you remember the name of the variety of your first fruit?
