I may never know why my two plants are different, yet in the long run I won't care too much as long as the figs are tasty! Here are a few additional fig photos from .09 Acres.
|Violette de Bordeaux fig tree from McDonald Garden Center. The tree is about 4 feet tall. I harvested figs from this tree in July, and there are additional figs growing on the newer branches.|
|Strawberry Verte fig tree. This tree grew about 5 feet this season is now over 7 feet tall. I will prune it back in late winter to keep it a manageable size for harvesting figs without a ladder.|
|Unripe Strawberry Verte figs. We typically don't see frost in my area until late October or even early November, so these will definitely ripen before the season is over.|
|Peter's Honey figs. This tree is prolific and grows like a weed. The flavor of these figs hasn't overly impressed me this year, but they have typically ripened right after periods of heavy rain. I think it has diluted the flavor a bit.|
