Abebereira, Bêbera, Bêbera Preto, Bebereira

Description

A long black fig from Caniço, Madeira Island. Excellent.

Condit

(syn. Bêbera). Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932). Known as Moscatel Preto at Coimbra, and Bêbera at Cacela and on the island of Madeira.

The tree produces two crops. Mello Leotte (1901), on the other hand, described Bêbera as a variety which does not produce a first crop, and the second crop as requiring caprification.

Brebas oblique-pyriform, sometimes much elongated; neck thick; stalk short; color violet-black; pulp dark carmine, streaked with violet; flavor sweet and agreeable.

Second-crop figs pyriform, elongated specimens unusual in having the internal cavity narrowed at the base rather than rounded; stalk short; color green toward the stalk, violet on the body; surface smooth, puberulent; pulp carmine; texture fine; quality good.
