Atreano Gold, Mediterranean Gold

Description

Atreano is a superb golden-green fig, larger than Alma or Italian Golden Honey and with a similar light sweet flavor. The golden rose interior is juicy and makes a fabulous addition to summer fruit salads -- marvelous eaten out of hand. The fruit hangs well on the tree, although it should be harvested promptly when ripe for the best flavor. Fast growing, sturdy tree that produces large crops of juicy figs in midsummer.

Easy to grow with excellent flavor, large fruit, adaptable to rain when ripening. Needs to be picked when fully ripe. May be marginal in zone 6 per some reports. High quality breba crop if protected that ripens up through main crop. Imported by Hanc Mathies, one of 3 varieties he kept. A light honey-strawberry fig. Big, bright, and early. Can tend to watery, so should be ripened under dry conditions.

A must-have for any fig collector, Atreano is a robust, fast growing fig that produces tasty clusters of light green figs with a sweet, pink interior. Figs are larger than Alma or Italian Golden, smaller than Conadria and hold on well when ripe. We have not tested this fig for winter hardiness, so northern growers should plan to protect well or grow in containers.
