Description

Medium black fig with dark-red pulp. Two crops. Abruzzi/Abruzzo is a region on the east coast of central Italy. 

Robert Harper in Connecticut: Another very sweet, old, cold hardy Italian fig. Appears to be cold hardy here, in Connecticut. But, we’re still testing it here, to see exactly how cold hardy it is. It does have the sprawling habit of some of the old cold hardy Italian figs, of the Abruzzi Alpennines. It has been grown and tested for twenty years or more, for cold hardiness in Ridgefield, Connecticut, by the author and gardener, Aldo Biagiotti. It’s also being grown as far north as zone 5 in up state New York, with cover. Needs protection against rain while it is ripening.  This fig was my 2013 favorite for flavor. DNA testing has shown it to be related to Hardy Chicago, Sal’s EL, and Dark Portuguese. It should have about the same cold hardiness as those three. Has a figgy taste profile similar to Marseilles Black VS, but with stronger, more complex  sweeter taste. Zone 6b/6a?
