BB 10
« on: December 02, 2019, 08:36:10 AM »
To All,

On the story of who has the ďrealĒ BB 10, and how this fig rates after the fig fever dies down is another example of crazy fig mania on the figs4fun forum.  BB 10 and the hype created some super crazy drama and more crazy stuff which in the end started an all out fig war.

JD can speak if he will about this because he remembers the drama of the fray.  So how amazing is a BB 10 fig?  I decided to wait till things died down to buy but many people paid way over 200.00 for cuttings.

So how many fig folks have tasted BB 10 and where does it rate?  Watch Ross on YouTube 


This is another example of ďHYPEĒ and abuse of the fig public by Fig Mafia and sellers who try to make huge profits.

Miss figgy we had talked to Ross on the Black Beauty 10 and he is giving his honest opinion on this variety being grown inside the greenhouse in the cold climate state.

So again this variety performs differently growing in a different growing zone and climate which doesn't have the same results being grown here in the south.

We had discuss the differences being grown here in the South with a extended growing season along with the heat to promote the sugars inside this fig is why he doesn't get the Big Ten Factor.

On the other side of this coin that a lot of this information has been deleted on both forums thank God for the cloud.

As we like to say stay tuned for the rest of the story. This is what the Fig Mafia doesn't want you to know and these are the facts.  https://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-home/130035-re-dan-s-bb-10

There's a lot of information that you need to read through to grasp what is going on.

This is Part of the Black Beauty 10 files and the truth at what really went on. It also shows you this display of the public thrashing that you see on other sites.

It also shows and proves what some people are willing to do to make a buck and the agenda apart of the Fig Mafia. Note that pukzpukz is addressed as being one of the most highest held trustworthy sources. We will let the group have time to read and sort through this information after this I will inform you about Paul Harvey and the rest of the story. This posting here should rate and have 1/2  to 1 million views.

Of course Ross gets more for his cuttings, he is well known due to his youtube videos.  People are willing to pay more for his products because they trust him.  I say that because that is how I feel as I am a newbie and don't know too many other people to acquire figs from.

Yea thats the main reason. No one points a gun at the buyers forcing them to do anything. If that's what he sells for good for him. He does put alot of time into this hobby

James Spearman of Greenfin has cuttings for (Removed Word).... many people buy to expand their collections.  But after noticing the color of Rossís Smith fig either he colorizes the pictures or its a different fig! Rossís Smith fig is lime green on the outer skin.... Will the real Smith fig please stand up!

PS (sorry moderators!)


we cannot be jumping or making a conclusion without knowing the facts.

We know for a fact that there are at least 3 different varieties of the Smith fig tree with a possibility of four. I have posted here on Southern figs along with photos of the leaves to show the difference.

LSU has created their own version from the original Smith that was given to him by the Bencel Family. This was verified by the great great grandson of the family that is now running the family business.

Texas A&M was  also involved in breeding the Smith fig.

Now Ross depending on what time of the year it is grows in a greenhouse which you will get different colorations of the green skin on figs. And he also grows in containers with his limited growing season. So you will get different shades of green depending on your growing zones and conditions and whether you grow in a greenhouse.

But if we were talking about the golden Celeste which many other reliable sources as they advertise or claim they are advertise the golden Celeste a green skin variety with red pulp.

Which clearly goes against the trees pedigree which is on file stating it is a yellow skin variety with yellow pulp. So the only way to actually change the inside color from yellow to Red would be through pollination which would happen on the west coast in California not on the east coast and Midwest we don't have the wasp so it can't be pollinated to change the color of the pulp.

The other fact is all yellow figs are green until they ripen a yellow skin fig is not green when it ripes
