Colummo Bianco

Description
Condit Monograph

(syn. Colummo Bianco). Described by Semmola (1845), Vallese (1909), De Rosa (1911), and Ferrari (1912). Illustrated by Semmola and by Vallese; regarded by Semmola as corresponding to Portoghese of Gallesio, but later writers fail to mention this similarity. Semmola stated that the figs sometimes drop prematurely, or reach only partial maturity; and De Rosa expressed doubt whether caprification is necessary. Vallese described Colummo Bianco as very similar to Colummone (Colombro) in fruit, but different in leaf characters.

Tree vigorous, attaining large size. Leaves large, asymmetrical, mostly 5-lobed. Description of fruit is after Vallese and De Rosa.

Brebas large, 3 inches broad by 3-1/2 inches in length, elongated-turbinate, broad at apex; eye large; skin thick, checking at maturity, greenish yellow in color; pulp creamy white.

Second-crop figs smaller, 2-1/4 by 2-3/4 inches, nearly spherical; stalk short; color greenish yellow, with many white flecks; pulp white, or sometimes light rose-colored; flavor sweet, delicate. Variety important, not only for its excellent breba crop, but also for the main crop. Used both fresh and dried. According to Ferrari, brebas are used as fresh fruit at Cosenza, and not exported.
