'Royale' Fig, aka 'Black Madeira Fig', in San Diego

(Click on underlined title to see more info and pictures)  Royale Fig, 2017, in OB, Sunset Cliffs, after a luscious bite, and a bit of adjustment of the fruit-meat for the photo(more photos further below if you click on the title).   Excellent rich very sweet fig, can sometimes have raspberry jam flavor notes, with delicious skin, which is marshmallowy and chewy.   I've grown this fig since 1990.  Ripens better in warmer dryer climate or micro-climate, best quality further inland.

New York Muscat Grape

The two photos immediately below is NYM which was grafted onto Pierce's Isabella, which makes NYM more vigorous and more productive with fruit.   The graft is near ground level in this case.  The photo just shows resulting growth and fruit.   If birds are a problem eating the fruit, mesh bags can protect the fruit cluster from being eaten.  Find those online.
