A couple of Jolly Tiger pictures
I'm pretty sure I took some pictures of the ripe figs (both inside and out), but I can't find them. When the figs are completely ripe they are large, dark purple on the outside and red on the inside. They also ripen fairly early in the season (unlike Panache). When the figs first appear on the tree they are striped green and yellow but not in the same stark contrast as Panachee. These Jolly Tiger figs really have very little in common with Panachee figs. There may be a version of this tree that has figs like Panache, but mine are not. I mentioned this to Barry (at Asiatica), and he emailed me a picture of a tree with variegated leaves (just like my leaves) with figs that looked exactly like Panache. Anyway, the figs were pretty good for first figs. It will be interesting to see how this one developes.
