So after four months of patient tender care, fig fruit have started to ripen! The picture above is showing
Ronde de Bordeaux left, Saint Rita longer pink/green skinned almost ripe to the right.
As the days draw towards fall, more figs will come ripe (hopefully) and I'll be able to have a sense of the early varieties with good flavor. Most likely if we get enough warm days between now and the end of September, most of the other fig fruit will be harvested and eaten. Otherwise we'll wait until next year, as all the trees will have deep roots and can produce and ripen fruit more consistently.
