'Giant' figs?....What's the real story?
I recently bought a "TEXAS BLUE GIANT" fig, that is supposed to produce very large, dark-blue fruit. We'll see about that.
I also know that there are other "giant" varieties...e.g. "Patrick's Super Giant", Fannick's Blue Giant", "Jack's Quarter-Pounder" "Malcolm's Giant"...etc. Do these trees really produce "giant-size", teacup-filling figs? And if yes, are these breba-figs, or, main-crop figs? I'll bet, tasteless breba. (This last sentence was confirmed by a famous NJ grower/collector).
My motto is 90% of everything is bull----, and figs are probably no different. So is this "giant" adjective, just another example of botanical hype, or, do these/can these varieties really produce super-large, main-crop figs?
