My Potted Figs

ch3rri(z6 PA)August 10, 2011

It's the fig season here in PA. My fig trees are loaded with figs! The ronde de bordeaux is the early fig because I already getting some ripe figs. The figs this year are larger than last year. I have six different fig trees. These fig trees grow so fast!

Just want to share some pictures.

Here is a link that might be useful: More figs pictures

I'm glad these figs are doing well for you. The Ronde de bordeaux is a very prdouctive and a vigorous tree, and you're taking good care of them. Good job.

Thanks Bass. I didn't need to care for them that much. Just water once a day. I only fertilize them once this summer. I hoping to taste the smith fig this year. There are a few figs on that tree.

Do you have any figs pictures to share?

Here's one of my first figs this summer called Panevino dark

This is the Brooklyn Dark Breba

Here's a variety called Guilbeau

A unique leaf pattern on this "Ice Crystal" fig tree

I got this tree last year when it was 2 ft tall. Now the tree is taller than me and have a lot of branches.

The figs is very sweet. It is sweeter than sugar when fully ripen. The skin is also thin. There is a very good aroma with this fig.
