My Fiorone Di Ruvo Fig Breba Dropped!

I've been waiting so patiently for my monster Fiorone Di Ruvo to Ripen. It was getting quite close.

This tree was a graft that I made onto a Gillette Cutting. Gillette's have a very vigorous root stock. You can read more about it here.

The neat thing about the tree was that the Gillette also put out a sucker which fruited as well. I was excited to see 2 different kinds of figs on one tree but now that I think about it, the competition for energy from a 1yr old tree may have been too much for the giant breba. Which may have caused it to drop.

Even at this stage of ripeness it weighed a whopping 91 grams. It may have broken the magical 100 grams if allowed to ripen.

Now I have to wait another year to see if I can get a ripe one. Hopefully it puts out a main crop as well.
