TFH-0697- Igo Berry Tart was found across in a culvert ditch on the uphill slope by The Fig Hunter .
It survived the Zog fire last year and the McFarland fire this year but a significant amount of branches actually burst from the heat.
***********It has a breba crop that ripens and when we double bagged immature figs this spring they fully ripened this summer .***********
This as close as we can be to confirmation of self pollination while in California .
Thank you for your support it takes a lot of time and energy traveling many miles to document and research these figs .
This amazing fig is green and red ribbed skin almost like faint stripes. The skin in thin, but has a nice resistance when biting in to it. The interior is super juicy with jam like texture, very little seed crunch the flavor is similar to a berry tart pastry. This is definitely a fig we are growing for ourselves .
