If you had to pick just one?
It's time for me to pick a variety of fig to plant in my garden, and while I've narrowed it down I still need help getting to the final choice for the tastiest fig (and that I can get at Edible Landscaping, since they are fairly close by).
For me, "tasty" is a complex flavor that's best fresh (I won't be drying them or making preserves). My grandparents had a huge Kadota tree (in central California) when I was growing up and I remember them being very sweet -- good but not all that remarkable.
I think I'm going to give a VdB a try in a container that can be moved into the garage for winter - I'm willing to have one that I baby but I also want something easy that will be eventually be prolific in my zone. This choice will be to plant in the ground - I've got a spot with good soil and direct sun all day but it only has room for one full-sized tree.
Here are my options:
Marseilles (though EL isn't going to get this for at least a month and I'm anxious to plant - is it worth waiting for?)
Which one is the best choice for what I'm looking for?
