Binello, Buzzone

Description

This is a medium-sized tree, which produces few brebas, of medium quality, and an early and abundant main crop, at the beginning of September till the first frosts. The main crop figs are really small, but have fair to good organoleptic qualities.

In cool and rainy summers, Gallo is a type of tree, whose branches keep on growing until the end of the fall season, preventing main crop from ripening. Therefore, it is very important to pinch the terminal buds, when branches bear between six to eight fruits

This fig tree is interesting for its cold hardiness, early main crop ripening period and manageable tree size. However due to really small fruit size, this fig tree is abandoned.

Gallo was found in an Italian village (350 meters of elevation) that is known for being cold and snowy during winter, in the southern part of the Alps.

It is also named "Binello" meaning "Twins" as main crop fruits often appear grouped together.

Biferous crop.
