This fig is called Verdino del Nord. It is by far the best fig you can grow in a humid climate.
Why? It has superior drying capabilities that very few other figs have. It has an extremely good resistance to fermentation due to its high brix and therefore is able to dry completely even in humid climates.. Not only that but it tastes as good as a Coll de Dama in its semi-dried state. It's jam on a tree. Very intense berry flavor.
Growing characterisitics: It's very productive even considering its small size. This variety has a tendency to put out 2-3 fruits and leaves where normal fig trees would only put out one, it has good annual shoot growth, it ripens early-mid season, doesn't split, rarely cracks, insects struggle to penetrate the skin and birds and other critters don't see it due to it's green/yellow skin. It has a tough thin skin with a fine texture. Has a long stem making it easy to pick and gives it a better ability to shed rain. Round shape. Very short hang time. 6ish days and you'll have a semi-dried fig. Inside it's a ruby. A fig ruby and one of two "fig berries." Nerucciollo d'Elba being the other. Of Italian origin. Also goes by the name Figoin. Be careful of other figs called Verdino or Verdino del Nord. There are growers named Tatiana & Nikky that sell a different Verdino del Nord. They're not the same fig. This will be one of two listings I have available this year. This set is my last. The remainder of my cuttings I am rooting to make copies for my orchard.
You might be wondering what my plans are for this fig. Well.. after propagating this fig for 3 close friends, I've
