Fig at Jogja Garden

Today is a shiny day. I found my fig fruit was ripen on the tree. I picked the fruit, washed, measured the weight and cut it into 4 pieces. I kept it in the refrigerator for a while. Eating a fresh fig from my own garden is something I am waiting for.

Ripen fig on the tree


My fig tree already gave me 2 fruits. The first was 4 days ago, and the second was this morning. They are still five on the tree. They don't ripen at the same time. So, I can still enjoy my figs in the next two weeks. The fruits took about 3-4 months to ripen. The first is 17 grams in weight and the second is 20 grams. Its taste is sweet. Delicious.....




My fig variety is Negronne, a large almost black fig with a very deep-red pulp. From ALABAMA A&M AND AUBURN UNIVERSITIES Fig Production Guide (w w w . a c e s a g . a u b u r n . e d u), I got the synonyms of this fig: Beer’s Black, Violette de Bordeaux.

I am waiting for the next ripen fig now.......
