The Few, The Early: Breba Figs 2017

First crop figs, known as breba figs, come in limited quantity on small trees but across a wide variety of cultivars. (Photos and list of this year’s first ripening breba dates by variety at link.) Some of the better breba figs to this point: 

Italian 376:

GT-1:

San Miro Piro:

Desert King:

Negronne (Violette de Bordeaux):

GM 20:

White Marseilles and Lattarula brebas were also stellar here this year, and among the earliest. No photos this year, but from previous years: Marseilles and Lattarula. Additional first-rate brebas included: O’Rourke, Mt Etna, Hunt, Palermo Red, Kadota.
