How often are you getting decent breba crops in ground zone 7 DC?
Once they are older trees, does the percent of decently successful breba years skyrocket?
Anyone care to venture an estimate of what % of seasons they get good breba crop here when trees are 3-4 years old and/or when they become older than that?
I managed to get only one great breba fig with some protection on a 4 year old even with the super mild winter due to a late frost. But a friend's fig who has an 18 footer was filled with brebas this season.
Northern VA/DC speaking only of in ground here.
I ask because I'm interested if it's even worth trying to go for having at least one good breba variety in ground here or not.
Is it only worth it if you're going to let your tree get 18 feet high?
If kept at 8 feet high, it gave a good breba crop every other year-- that could be worth it.
