Description

A dark fig, bifera, discovered by Sergio Carlini in the Italian alps. Also known as Nero 400m. Main crop has a rounded shape. Recommended by Herman2 as one of the most rain-resistant figs appropriate for the humid Northeast sector.

Very cold tolerant, fruit quality excellent even with rain and humidity if properly ripened and tree is mature. Highly recommended. Some may be the same as Valle Negra and/or Valle Calda.

Robert Harper in Connecticut: From the foothills of the Alps in Italy. Its breba crop has survived upstate New York winters, in a pot inside a detached, unheated garage. It is said that it is very cold resistant, and tolerant of rains during the time it ripens. Some fig collectors think it could be comparable to figs like Madeira Black in taste. There is a lot of great hope that this extremely cold hardy fig will end up being the best outdoor fig that can be grown in the northeast. Hardiness unknown at this time. But, it may be a fig that can easily handle the cold through zone 6a. We are presently testing it now. One gallon pots should be ready maybe around 2016/2017?
