My new favorite fruit: Strawberry Verte fig

After 8 years trying I've finally grown some good figs the past two years. My favorite is Strawberry Verte. It's very sweet but even better is the smooth rich flavor. They taste as good as anything I grow. Only the best nectarines have as rich a flavor to my palate. And they are still producing after all the stone fruit has been harvested. These pictures were taken today. I'll have fruit another month.

The fruit is medium size, green drying to gray/brown, and reddish pulp. The figs dry down to the perfect moisture for eating or storage before falling off the bush.
