This is my 3rd visit to the Fig Farm after my 1st visit in February this year. Then 1 month later, we stopped to visit on our way back from a trip to Cameron Highland but none of us bought anything. My friends (husband and wife) who heard me shared about growing fig trees were interested and suggested making a trip to visit the farm. We picked last Tuesday because it was a holiday for my friends.
After breakfast, we started the drive to Simpang Pulai in my friend's car. I guessed we were the first customers as we were there quite early. The fig plants have grown so much since my 1st visit and there were many other types of plants on sale as well. Looks like the farm is expanding.
After some introductions of the fig plants by the boss, my friends chose 2 fig plants. One was the Australia fig and the other was the BTM6. I too bought one baby fig plant and according to the boss, it is the Purple Jordan. The 1st plant I bought on my 1st visit was a Brunswick Fig.

On the right is their calamansi plant, already with fruits hidden from view.
This is my Purple Jordan fig plant.
I was looking for a calamansi plant and I found one at the fig farm.
It was flowering and I hope to see fruits forming on the plant soon.
While at the farm, the boss plucked a ripe fig for us to taste.
It was of a light/pale yellowish colour. Taste wise, only a tinge of sweet.
The fig fruit was broken into quarters and we shared it with another customer who was there with us. I can't remember which specie was this fig.
