We did not intend to list this until spring, but it has been very much requested so we are making a limited amount available.
This delicious fig weighs between 114g and 129g, on our certified scale. Amen's Citron is very juicy, with an interior that can be scooped out and used immediately as jam. It has a fruity sweetness, with citrus notes that become more forward as you get closer to the eye of the fig. It bears a thin skin that melts away as you bite in to the fruit, and a surprisingly light seed crunch. You will find beautiful color variations on this fig, with greens, to grayish purple, striping, and sugar cracking.
Amen's Citron has been a #burkefamilyfarms favorite sine we first discovered it. We have previously sold it to restaurants in Napa Valley and local farmer's markets. You can see this tree on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJlC0weESuc
All cuttings are 6 inches or longer, with 3 or more nodes. All cuttings will be freshly sealed at time of shipping. This was a 2019 find, and for the sake of transparency, we cannot yet confirm if it is common. Cuttings have been sent out of the area for growing and confirmation.
