Filacciano Bianco

Description

This variety is often referred to as Filacciano Bianco. Gene Hosey of East Coast Figs (now closed) obtained this variety from Sergio Carlini of Genoa, Italy. It is considered a San Pedro variety (i.e. the wasp is required for the main crop of figs to ripen); however, there have been reports that 10-20% of the main crop ripens anyway. In my zone (7a) it ripens its brebas around the first week of July. The fruit has greenish-yellow skin when ripe and pinkish pulp. it is considered a honey fig. This variety was growing in-ground in southern Maryland for several years and even though it wasn't protected it was able to ripen a breba crop pretty much every year except for the exceptionally cold 2013-14 winter. An East Coast Figs variety page described it as follows: “Matures fiorone (i.e. breba) starting about July 10 in my area. Fall crop requires caprification in order to mature; Wood is more resistant to frost damage than others; This variety originates in the Lazio region; the name Filacciano is a local Lazio term for breba.”
