Description

Some comparisons have been done with Vasilika Sika that indicate they are the same variety.

Charlie @ OurFigs: Here's the story as related to me by Sister Theda, last Fall while I pruned the tree. It was brought over by the Kumpuris family who migrated from Greece and settled around Little Rock, Arkansas many years ago. The old home with the original tree was sold and cuttings acquired by Sister Theda from Little Rock before the tree was destroyed. She gave Sister Madeline a cutting from it some 20 years ago and she stuck it in the ground where it now is, as was the way she knew to start fig trees.
Madeline's Mother was Italian and her father, who I assume was American grew the yellow and dark figs that came from her mother's family in Southern Arkansas while Madeline was a child. Sister Madeline has kept her family trees going there at the Monastery, around the corner from the Green Greek.
I have contacted a member of the Kumpuris family in Little Rock but he nor any of his immediate family know anything of the fig or its history.

I'm not too good at describing since my experience is very limited. The more ripe ones last year tasted like the best, sweetest strawberry I ever had except better, so it definitely has a berry profile. This one was that and even better since it was an earlier fig than last year, larger and more juicy. It lasts a long time after you eat it. I could taste it for at least an hour. Little bit crunchy. The skin is thick as you can see but not tough. It has a flavor all its own. It will take somebody with more fig experience to properly describe it so others can relate.
