VERY proud (I am in GA; not sure what variety they are but ordered it from a catlog sometime back; doesn't need cross pollination)
Great looking figs, what do they taste like.
Just off the top of my head I'd say they look like Celeste the "sugar fig".
I agree that they are Celeste. My Celeste figs are ripe in N.C., and I just talked to my son in law in the Atlanta area, and his are also ripe. Leaf pattern is also helpful. Celeste usually has some 5 lobed leaves, and some 3 lobed leaves. Mine is about 50:50, but the ratio varies from limb to limb. The color, size and shape of the fruit are all consistent with Celeste.
What color is the interior? I would have left them on the tree a few more days until they started cracking.
Thank you all.
vito: they taste sweet. I am eating them semi-ripe (some even have a bit of "milk" on top). The ripened ones are very sweet.
ejp3: I would have left them on tree (please see another of my post today) but for the birds. What I have noticed that if I plug them at the start of ripening process and leave them on countertop, they continue to ripen indoor. The difference bet. even a day is quite dramatic.
The very ripe fruit is very purple and interior is pink to dark pink.
I think there are only 2 or 3 varieties that grow in GA.
The tree picture is included. It does have 5 loped leaf as Harvey mentioned. The tree is very small (5-6 ft only) and I think this is only its 2nd year. From nature
Also, this tree grows on a massive downward incline. I have been watering it from the lake (pictured behind the tree) water all summer long. The rains have started in GA and it might help. I am considering building a small "wall" around the base to capture/retain some water to make my tree healthier and fruit more juicier.
