John,

They looked amazing and that is why it was hard waiting.


Ben,

I do need to protect them.


Janet,

I am trying and thank you.

Sorry for the long wait but we left town for a while but of course that made it easy to wait. 

Weight:          #1- 12/ #2- 9/ #3- 8 grams
Eye:               Some what closed
Skin Color:     Greenish with brown
Pulp:              Yellowish, No cavity
Taste/Flavor:   All tasted like a fig.  They were all sweet.
Seed:             No seed crunch

The pics are in the order: Pic 1&2 are of fig 1, Pic 3&4 of fig 2 and Pic 5&6 of fig 3.  We liked the first 2 figs better then the 3rd.  The 3rd one was jammy and chewy.  Family did not care for chewy. Donít get me wrong we still ate it and it was sweet but too chewy.

I have a Golden Celeste somewhere out back.  I'll have to go see how close it is to producing fruit.  Hopefully, it has something growing. lol

The trees are not liking the heatwave we are having and I think it's affecting the fruit.  My Celeste's fruit is all wrinkled and soft.  I water daily so it's not from the lack of water.

Denise,

Agree, not the lack of water but the crazy 100F temps.  We keep getting the heat index warning.  I hope your tree has some cause if you want a sweet fig that is one.
