On Friday morning, after being away for more than two weeks, I toured our backyard, plucking green grapes off of the vines. And I noticed our fig tree is ripening. I had expected the figs to turn black, but they haven’t. They’re yellow, syrup is leaking out of them and some are soft. A. and I tore a few apart and ate them on the spot — they’re sweet and delicious.
I’d love to identify the variety, but I’m having trouble. Any fig experts out there?
We live in California desert (about an hour from Death Valley) and our tree is about 15 feet tall.
