Ital 258 is an excellent fig. The brebas are as good as the main crop. Nice pics, thank you.

Nice, Richie. Couldn't agree more about how good Italian 258 is.

Dan is it normal for them to split even if it stoped raining? Ground it probably just still really saturated from 7 weeks of rain

Here were my first ever I-258. Off a tree that started off pretty small last year, and stalled most of the summer. It was good. But I am hoping for better with more maturity.

I've never had an I258 split before on me. But we never get 7 weeks of rain. Ouch!

Is it I-258 a closed eye variety? Do you think it would do well in a hot summer area? It looks very good, Thanks!
