2016 Fig Taste - Scores and Rankings

On this page, I will score and rank the figs I've eaten in terms of taste for 2016.

Smith Fig: Best of 2015


Three Categories to judge for: Taste, Size, Productivity
10 is best and 1 is the poorest.

Size Chart in grams:
1 = 1-10
2 =11-20
3 =21-30
4 =31-40
5 = 41-50
6 = 51-60
7 = 61-70
8 = 71-80
9 = 81-90
10 =91-100+

This list will change as the year goes by. I will score brebas as well as main crop. This is very subjective to Seattle's zone 8B and my personal preference. However I would love to hear about your top tasting fig in the comments below in your area.
