Adriano's Genovese Nero, Rafed's Genovese Nero

Variety Strains
Description

Distinct from Rob's Genovese Nero, which is essentially a California Brown Turkey.

Similar to Italian 258. There is some debate as to whether they are the same. Either way, it's an awesome variety. The AF designation is for Adriano, from whom Rafed originally acquired the variety.

The taste has been compared to Italian 258, Black Madeira or Preto, but easier to grow and ripens earlier. Does not tolerate rain well.

Bluemalibu @ OurFigs: Here in our clime of long, blast-furnace summers, I-258's doppelganger is Genovese Nero [AF]. The two may very well behave differently from one another in a cooler or more humid area, but the fruit's eating qualities, ripening times, skin toughness and the tree's leaves are identical here.
