Why is there Osbourne Prolific totally green with redish flesh, and all of mines is a purple colored fig?

Good Question:I have an Osborne Prolific from a Gardener in Oregon,and,When Ripe, is Orange Exterior,with dark yellow interior.
It only had Breba Figs last year in second of it's life.Second crop fell off.Regards
Most litereature will say that the corect Osborn Prolific is Brown Tan Exterior with amber interior.

The White Texas Everbearing pulp in the picture is red, whereas the pulp of my White Texas Everbearing, which came from a cutting from the individual who provided the White Texas Everbearing to the Germplasm repository, is amber. The pulp of my Kadota is also amber, rather than red as is the pulp of the Kadota from U of Cal. Perhaps the difference in color is due to climate or caprification of the fruit in California.

From Belleclare: Osborne Prolific Medium,Green to Brown, Amber Center,Sweet Very Prolific, Hardy (2crops). Both of the UCD observations indicate their fig does indeed have yellow-green skin.

For all the discussions in this forum about mislabeled fig trees at nurseries, I don't think any one has discussed the possibility that UCD has mislabeled trees. I suppose they are susceptible to the same problems we have.

Yes, changing the air every few days is a good idea. Many cuttings will not get moldy, but inevitably some are so inclined.

WTE at Figs4Fun. It was late, in its' first season, and not fully ripe, but definitely will be red/pink inside.

Herman,

You described my Osborn quite well:
"Most litereature will say that the corect Osborn Prolific is Brown Tan Exterior with amber interior."

That sounds more like what mines look like.

The Osbourne that I have does an excellent job ripening even in mild San Franciso summers. Last year, I had about two weeks of fog and close to no sun. It felt chilly, and I was a bit concerned about the figs not ripening. But Osbourne still did ripened.
