Variety Strains
Description

HarveyC @ Figaholics as Black Provence: Black French fig of medium size and nice flavor.  Leaves have reddish petioles and this variety has sometimes mistakenly been said to be a synonym for Ischia Black.  Early fruits had a light amber pulp which is typical for this variety.  Later fruits were red and probably the result of being pollinated (though pollination is not required for this common type fig).
