  1. Actually, ‘Gene’s Vashon’ is incorrectly assessed and identified as a ‘Brown Turkey’ variant!

    This happens to be THE IDENTICAL fig-varietal affectionately known as “Cotentin”, with origins in Normandy, France.
    “Cotentin” is the name of the peninsula between Normandy, France and the English Channel- or presently, Great Britain today. (Invaders / conquerors now referred to, in-part, as ‘Normans’, including the Middle-age migratory “Sicilians” to areas of Washington State… Certainly not the original inhabitants of these territories.) So, accurate history remains important and of equal relevance.
