giant black german fig

marius67(6)October 10, 2010

This is my giant black german fig,2 years old,planted inground,zone 6,Cleveland,ohio.Doesn't taste very good,but....it's a winner for my climate area with a light winter protection.

That looks like a pretty decent fig. I would let it ripen on the tree for a few days to a week longer, at least until the sides start cracking, then I bet it would taste much better.

Ed is right I would also let it set and ripen until I see cracks on the skin. however at this time of year it may not develop the best flavor.

Marius:This fig will get earlyer in the next years,when will be older,so there is hope.
I also got a fig as Black German,But not (giant),yet I see it has similar leaves,and mine did not fruit,because it is too young.

Hi Rob5020.I cover my figs with old cotton clothes,leaf humus or mulch or...aged horse manure.On top i use CLEAR plastic bag with small holes to prevent condensation.Marius

I visited Germany last fall and found some large dark purple figs at the Munich street market. I sure would like to find out what kind they were and if they can be grown in NE Alabama.

Marius, just an update. Got 3 to root and it is a tremendous grower. I wouldn't be surprised if one gives me figs this year. Curious as to the background of this fig. Thanks
