Found a fig seedling tree that is giant in my moms back field. This tree gets no water so im surprised there are figs and its doing so well. The figs on this tree are small and as you see inside color is red and OMG... the flavor is the most intense berry flavor ive ever experienced before...like rich sweet strawberry. So happy to have found it. I will make cuttings of it and make more trees. I bet if properly cared for, this tree would get even bigger figs. It does not matter though..the flavor is so incredible. This is my new favorite fig so far. Does it look or sound like any particular variety? I know its a seedling as its growing wild in blueberry field in wrong location....growing next to male caprifig.

  Hey,  great find!

  Discovering these treasures growing wild is the great blessing of living in the land of blastophaga...

  Similarly, I stumbled across this tree (which bears figs tasting of Cinnamon/Cherry) while actively seeking multi-crop caprifigs:

So envious! Fig trees cannot grow wild in the Sonoran desert. Blueberries probably mean that your soil has a low pH and your area has a moderate climate -- in which Zone is your beautiful fig growing, sacredorigen?

Thank you everyone for the comments! I am excited about this fig. I know its not just me ( fig addicted ) either. Today i gave my guests a taste of a brown turkey fig and they said it was good. Then i gave them a tast of this fig and asked them their opinion. Their faces lit up and they said this is the best tasting fig ever and that they had never tasted such a flavor in a fig, never knew it existed.

My guest is Dutch and has had many exotic foods from around the world and is very educated in foods and various cultures.

This is how they described it.

Rødgrød

 

Taste is very similar to this fruit pudding Rødgrød

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B8dgr%C3%B8d

Foreground Flavor: Blackberry, Wild Raspberry

Background Notes: Perrilla, Bergamont and Juniper

Skin Color: green with violet stripes and hue

Flesh color: red berry

I agree 100 percent! they put to words which to me was indescribable.

The seedling is vigorous and cuttings rooting in water already after just 4 days.. I will grow many more of them, so in love with this one!!

Here are the leaves.
