I want to purchase a fig. I have a supplier near me who carries Celestic... What is your opinion of it's taste and texture? Is it prone to splitting after lots of rain??
My Celeste fruit split only after the heavy rains when the hurricane (i don't recall the name anymore...argh) came through earlier this year. Otherwise, I haven't had problems with splitting. When ripe and not water logged, flavor is good, but I have limited experience with other varieties.
I misread. I wrote about Celeste, not Celestic.
I am sorry, I misspelled the var. It is Celeste. NOT Celestic..
