Several of our figs are making some big, good looking breba fruit. I am expecting a big crop of fruit from our five fig trees this year.
We have three trees that were planted in 2010 as 5 gallon trees from Bob Wells Nursery and now have reached a good size. This will be the first year of production for them. They are LSU Purple, Black Mission, and Texas Everbearing. The photograph above is of an unripe fruit from our Texas Everbearing fig tree.
We have two other fig trees that were planted in 2009 and are really large by now. When I ordered them, I thought they were Brown Turkey and Celestial varieties. However, a few other trees that I bought from this nursery were not what the nursery represented them to be, and based on the fruit characteristics, I think these two fig trees were also mislabeled. The fruit from these two trees has always had a light, yellowish-green skin with a whitish-light pink interior, which is inconsistent with what a Brown Turkey or Celestial fig should look like. I am not certain what type of fig trees these, in fact, are; however, I suspect that they might be Conadrias or Lattarula/Italian Honey or Peter's Honey figs.
Here is an old photograph of a ripe fig from one of these trees.
