Per Yatama @ OurFigs:

I read about the PANEVINO, discovered behind some Italian restaurant up north, so began snooping behind local restaurants looking for fig trees here, and I found one behind an old pizza place. The tree is a bush form about 10ft tall and 15 ft wide, bore heavy crop this year in late August. Fruit size of improved celeste, color of BT figs, taste real sweet. Most interesting is it's apparently been in ground at least 30 years never killed despite several years with 25 degree weather in march and early april after having experienced warm 70 degree days and sun which wiped out some figs I had years ago, also some winters here hit 8F time or two over 20 year period. Not sure if is named variety, but could be a SBT of some sort, however this area has been settled by farmers since mid 1700's and some tobacco farmers may have imported European figs.

I can try and post photos of the now almost leafless plant as well as one of nicely leafed out cuttings I have indoors. Realizing nobody is going to regard this as some sort of long lost rare fig, I just thought if anyone wanted a cutting of an apparently hardy fig that has survived and fruited many years in ground, a cutting could be mailed rather easily. One good thing about this fig is NO leaf showed any sign of FVD. I'll try to post photos if anyone is interested. Personally am planting ten of these in my new fig orchard.
