Description

Robert Harper in Connecticut: Some thirty years ago, we first discovered this fig growing uncovered in a protected location, in Hartford Connecticut. It appeared to have already been an old planting. I have watched this tree ever since we discovered it, and have never seen it covered with anything. Cold Hardy from between minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit to minus 6 degrees Fahrenheit, in a protected location? A good tasting cold hardy fig, for those who want good tasting figs right away. Not as heavy a bearer as Danny’s Delight. But, bears really good tasting figs first year in ground. Has a taste profile very similar to Sal’s EL.  Appears to be another Mount Etna (Mongebello) type fig. Our taste test winner for 2009. Zone 6b/7a?.
