The verdict on my Fig fruit variety - Barnisotte

Probably we have got a high expectation on a variety that many have given good comments about.  So far, fig variety Barnisotte has been a disappointment to us, for its fruit is dull and near tasteless for the one that we have tasted last night.
It was probably due to the first fruiting for this tree, many had said that the quality of the first batch of fruits tend to be less satisfying.  I really hope so.  There are some more Barnisotte fig on the tree waiting to be ripen.  This time we will have to patiently wait till the figs are fully ripen hope they will not be over ripen and turn bad.

A morning tour of my fig plants

Woke up slightly early this morning, able to steal sometime to check on our fig plants before going to work. In fact, I am pretty excited to see so many fruits on the trees. Honestly, not all the fruits turn out to be good, we had thrown away some of the fruits because they turned bad prematurely on the tree due to many factors, too much rain, white flies, and other pesticides are all detrimental to growing fig trees. We hope to harvest 2 of the fruits from Louisiana University Gold variety hopefully by this evening, you will see in my video below that they are looking good on the tree but have yet to taste them to give an honest recommendation on this variety.
