Description

Robert Harper in Connecticut: Discover and named by a fellow fig collector. It is growing in a shady location, winter uncovered, in upstate Sodus, NY. Said by the present owners, to have been brought to America over 120 years ago, by their family. So, it has had plenty of time to adapt to our cold winters, and all the different American strains of FMV. It appears to be a super cold hardy English Brown Turkey. After being planted in several different locations in America, it finally ended up in Sodus, NY., sometime around 1960. The closest weather station for Sodus, is Rochester, NY. Their historical weather data indicates Rochester, NY., has gotten to a low of minus 17 degrees Fahrenheit, in 1994. It has also gotten as low as minus 12 degrees Fahrenheit there, as recently as 2004. This might be the fig needed by upstate New Yorkers, and others trying to grow figs in a zone 5 location. Could be as cold hardy as LaRadek’s English Brown Turkey. We just got our start in 2013. So, one gallon nursery pots may not be available, until 2015-2016. Zone 5a/5b?
