Genovese Nero

I have seen this variety mentioned on a number of websites but I haven't seen anyone post that they've actually tasted the fruit. If you have, could you please post and tell us how they were? I'm wondering if it's all that it's cracked up to be.

RE: Genovese Nero

I just got one, I heard the same things so I bit the bullet and paid $130 for a plant no more then 6 inches tall. I have spoke to a few owner of this plant and they said there are others that taste better but none that look quite the same. The guy I bought the plant from said the figs taste like berries more then figs. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more service but I hope this helps.

Hi Frenchy.
I just ate my first Genovese, It weighed 102 grams it's a beautiful fig and the taste was awsome!
