Kelby @ OurFigs:Atreano is said to have been bred in Durazzano, Italy for superior production and taste. It was imported to America from Italy by fig lover Hanc Mathies and then shared with Belleclare Nursery in the late 90's. This is another one the three figs Hanc Mathies kept in his collection as he aged (along with Hanc's English Brown Turkey and Green Ischia). This variety is somewhat hardy, but it shouldn't be considered reliably hardy north of Zone 7. Does not seem to fruit first year after dieback. It does grow very well in containers.

 

Robert Harper in Connecticut: From an Italian breeding program. Then imported by the late Hanc Mathies from Italy. Considered by many to be the best tasting cold hardy green/yellow fig, for the northeast. Or every where growers have a cool fall. Some growers in the south have reported that this fig produces a better fall crop then its summer crop, in areas where it would produce 2 main crops. We just started testing this one this year, 2012. But, think it should be cold hardy to at least 0 degrees Fahrenheit. May need winter protection in zone 7 and colder. Has a honey tasting profile. Zone 7/a/7b?
