My first Monstreuse figs. Excellent! Heavy bearer of large tasty figs north of Philadelphia PA. These figs were grown in a pot. I got a few late figs last year that never ripened. This year the plant has about 50 figs.

Very nice. Is that the Monstreuse from UC Davis?

Looks fantastic, I just got my Monstreuse from another member and I can't wait to try these figs. Is Black Jack and Monstreuse the only 2 fig trees you have? I have a few cultivars maybe we can trade some cuttings. if your interested send me an email and I'll give you a list of all I have. I even have a few rooted figs and other edible plants ready to ship now if you want to trade plant for plant.

Nice photo!
The leaves and fruit look the same as mine from Rolling River Nursery. You're right, it is one of the best tasting white figs.

I have one of these (a wee baby) that I got through a California Rare Fruit Growers raffle. I put it in the ground this winter, and it looks pretty happy.
