Thanks! I am really twitching for the Strawberry Verte and the Izbath An Naj. Both of those i am really excited for. Have you had either of those before?

I have a strawberry verte, but I haven't tasted the fruit from it yet. I'm a second year grower. I imagine it is quite similar to my Oak St Unk though, as adriatics, from what I hear, are all similar in flavor, but it's growing habits that distinguish them. If so, it's a very, very good fig.
