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.”
