Ficus carica 'Lattarula' is very productive and reliable especially in cool summer climates, producing abundant, yellowish-green figs with sweet and richly flavourful, amber flesh that tastes like honey. In coastal BC it ripens in late July and early August with abundant crops produced over about three weeks. You'll see them across East Vancouver as they are the cultivar of choice for Italian-Canadians. Get ready to eat fresh figs every day, serve them with goat cheese wrapped in proscuitto, and make fig jam. You'll likely have so many you'll have to give them to friends and neighbours!
