Description

A strain of Black Madeira that KK received from Jon at Encanto Farms. Jon's mother tree of this strain has since been lost and replaced by the UCD strain. Not to be confused with KK's Portugal Black Madeira (AKA Madeira Island Black). This strain is considered to show less signs of FMV and have more vigorous growth.

Ian Neil Matthes: Figs in December! This is the Black Madeira (KK), which is pretty much universally considered a top 4 fig out of hundreds of types. My anonymous fig godfather sent cuttings to me last fall. This one has a spot in the basement next to St. Rita! Intense berry flavor, thick slightly chewy skin, light crunch, and perfectly balanced moderate sweetness. St. Rita has competition on the taste test, especially from a first year fig.
