Description

This is a fundraiser auction to benefit Doug's son that just lost his home in the recent fires. For anyone that doesn't know, this is the Doug that introduced all the premium "ito" varieties. As someone that lost his home to a wildfire just 2 years ago and received lots of help from friends, I want to give back. 

This is a recent introduction by Bill B. He has hundreds of varieties and this is his favorite of all of them. It could possibly be an improved and superior strain of Blue Celeste. I had several figs from my first year tree and they are excellent figs. This is one of my most highly anticipated varieties for next year.

I have now had several of these from my fairly large tree and they are really good. Early, productive and delicious. I would say this is a fig that you could easily gorge yourself on. It has just enough fruity flavor to keep it interesting. A winner for sure. An interesting feature of this variety is that honey sort of oozes from all of the cracks in the skin and provides an excellent sweetness to the super soft and thin skin.  Bill has assured me that they can get even better if I wait a little longer.  :-)
