The initial fig harvest, called the breba crop, only accounts for 10-15% of the season's harvest, but Ryan says they are the best figs of the year. The Black Mission Figs are currently at the peak of this first crop. The first figs of the season stayed on the tree when it went dormant, and continued to grow in Spring. The breba figs tend to have less of the micro hairs or fuzz that can give you "Fig burn" from eating too many fuzzy figs.
At this time, we also have the White Kadota variety that is being grown on Maui in Launiupoko. The beautiful squishy figs have a light yellow green skin and an intense rich syrupy quality.
