Sal's Corleone Pics

I recently picked my very first Sal's Corleone fig from a small potted tree. The fig was juicey, solid, and sweet. While lagging some flavor, there is an aftertaste that is obviously pleasant. I believe subsequent figs will be larger and of better quality. Nevertheless, it's a keeper and I thought I would post the pics. I hope others who have Sal's Corleone will share their photos and opinions as well.

Hi,

The fig looks yummy!

Does this tree do better in hot, dry weather, or does it do well in wet, humid, rainy weather? It looks like it has a more open eye, but when I look at the fig halved, it doesn't look like the eye goes to the inside, or is that just the way it was cut?

Thanks,

Vivian

Honestly, I don't have much experience with this variety to say how it will weather our hot, dry climate. I don't know if it will split or sour under humid conditions either. The eye appears open externally but did not penetrate the cavity, which is fairly solid.

Leon that does look good I got a small tree in April, it is now over 3 ft tall and I have pinched the tops twice. It is a very strong grower here and I should be picking some figs in the next month. I will post on this thread if you don't mind

I will also post ,pixes of my fruits from Corleone as soon as they ripe,but it will be a while,till it does,because my fig is inground and so it does produce ripe fruits later compared to in pot figs.
Last year I had fruits and they were double in size compared to Dr Leon,fruits.

Herman and Snaglpus:
It will be interesting to see what your Sal's Corleone figs look like. As I said, this was the very first fig from this little tree and so we all know how that goes.
Herman, what is your opinion on the taste of Sal's Corleone?

RE: Sal's Corleone Pics

I've had my Sals Corleone for about two years now and it is doing great. I have yet to try one but it is producing very well this year. In fact most of my trees are producing well this year.

But I live in the North so I have to wait a little longer.

Leon,
If you don't mind I can post a picture of my Sals tomorrow.
Right now the rain is coming down hard and don't want to bother with it.

I have been trying to postpone getting this variant. Looks like I need this variant sooner than I thought. LOL - Hopefully just one more tree.

Very sweet and good flavor,yet my opinion is that my tree is still young and the fruits are not what they will be when tree is fully mature.

Herman I fully agree with you.

Mine was a little more amber and not as red inside I also found this to be the case with my Conadria this season. Not sure if the heat we have had is affecting them to where the insides are just ripening to fast to develop their true color and flavor, but that is the only thing I can point to at this time

My sals of c last years crop was slightly larger than yours pictured. I had a few split on me but the variety did well overall in that regard. Genes strain was much more prolific for me but the corleone had a nice taste that was different from Genes
