“Liberty Red “ is a large seedling found in  Tehama County, just off the side of a frontage road.  It is likely a seedling of another fig tree sitting just north at the edge of another fruit and nut orchard.  The bush-like canopy is roughly 25 feet wide. 

 

This is an average size fig, with yellow to green skin and red ribs.  It bears a juicy red interior with light seed crunch.  The flavor of this fig is sweet also reminiscent of a just underripe blueberry, in that it has blueberry undertones but still has that bit of tartness.  Simmers down to a beautiful jam.
