newbie here: help in identifying my figs
Love what I've seen here! This is my first post, hope I'm not egregiously breaking protocol!
I live in Portland, OR, bought my house on '03 and it came with a very productive mature fig tree in the back.
The tree is anywhere from 10'-15' tall, canopy is probably 13' across.
In a typical summer it will be ripe and prime picking in mid-July. Last year it was last week in July. This year, right now (mid-August)...we just had our first 90+ degree day since last summer!
I've never know what our variety is, except that I never see it in stores or markets in the area. The outer flesh is always a light green, it does not brown on the vine. If picked and left on the counter for a few days, hey! Presto! Browning figs.
Inner fruit is light pink to purple, to rich purple depending on ripeness. Leaves are 3 or 5 lobed.
Pics are here if anyone would be so kind as to take a look and let me know what they think. My best guess is a Paradiso, but it sounds like there are a lot of variants under that umbrella.
Many thanks for any help that may come and for such a great fig resource here!
