These figs are tempting to make a focal part of a dooryard orchard, because they are relatively big and bright, very juicy and prolific, and relatively early ripening. Excellent big, bright, early fruit can be grown with these precocious varieties. Unreliable flavor can be a problem however, as these varieties may ripen fruit that is too watery, diluting sweetness and flavor. And when that happens, the thin green-yellow skin on each of these figs sometimes leave a bitter aftertaste. These are very good figs when well ripe, but it can be tricky getting there.
