How Sweet it is....

Beth Ribblett

We just ate our first fig from the little tree cutting I brought back from Sicily almost 2 years ago!  Last year it made a few figs that never ripened so this was the first time we actually got to sample the fruit.  We didn't have high expectations as it was not very aromatic, but boy were we wrong!  It was the sweetest most flavorful fig I have ever eaten and I am so excited to have more on the way!  We put it in a bigger pot early this spring and it is doing very well.  I know as soon as we put it in the ground it will really thrive, but we want to wait until the fall so it doesn't get to stressed with the heat.  For those of you who don't know the story behind the Sicilian fig cutting from the Planeta winery, click here For the Love of Figs
