New Gota del Mel
« on: August 18, 2019, 01:49:13 PM »
We received this Variety in a trade and been waiting on it for a few years to produce. We notice  it had some figlets on it a while back and I've been kind of watching it.

As the figs progressed and got larger we kept a better eye on it. we notice some color change here early in the week and today notice the birds had already hit it.

I did find this solo fig and was not prepared for the surprise that this variety had for me.
We had Bam we had fireworks an explosion to the taste buds so intense that I actually went and looked the tree over again for another one.

This one here had an intense sweetness to it and a flavor that I yet cannot pin down so definitely require some more testing on this one.

We're going to finish looking this tree over today and probably going to put bird netting around it until I can get a good idea.
