Fig Nicolena

    14 responses

TMary starts with ...
My first fig this season rescued from the ants just in time. Sweet with a sour note, yum. I think the rain made it split open a little prematurely. The Nic is a new addition to my orchard and I am happy to have it. Peels easily but good with peel.

I wasn't sure when to pick them, only dark figs till then, when I did they had a nice even sweetness a nice balanced flavour.

vict when they are ripe they look fat and heavy, they droop from the stem, they open at the end and sometimes you see nectar oozing out. They also yield to light pressure.

Actually my BP is not looking good vict though it has pushed out some figs. The leaves all look mottled and rusty. I might remove them all and hope that new leaves will be free of virus.

My two BP's are same, mottled leaves with a slight yellow ting.
Must be something specific to that type, the other two I got are fine.( w Nick & Sil Beauty).
