I Need Help Choosing a Fig!
Hi, I've been reading posts here about figs and had decided to buy my first ever fig tree, specifically the Brown Turkey based on favorable reviews. Then I went on the Fig forum, and the expert poster there, who even has his own website selling an amazing variety, mentioned that the world seemed to be divided into 2 parts, people who like Brown Turkey, and those who don't. Yikes! I have never eaten a BT before, I assumed it would taste more or less like a...fig. By that I mean the black ones, like Mission figs. I am not picky; I think I will love all figs. My local farmers market is woefully unenlightened when it comes to naming the fruit. Most just have signs saying Figs. Some might say Mission Figs. That's it.
So, what should I buy for my location, near LAX about 5 miles from the coast? Is BT similar in taste to Missions?
Can someone who has grown both tell me what difference there is in taste, productivity, etc? I don't want to buy a BT only to find I belong to the second group.
