Description

eboone @ OurFigs: This is the Italian Black from Durio's Nursery, which is supposed to carry the Becnel's variety. Deeply cut 5 lobed leaves, most with 2 'thumb' lobes as well pointing straight back toward the stem. Very sweet, rich fig; Very dark purple, with pink to red interior, this is one to let start to shrivel a bit before picking if possible as it will be much better quality. Prone to splitting in rains. First fig in 2015 was on 9/14. in 2016 was on 9/10. Not vigorous
