Black Madeira (KK), Portugal Black Madeira

Description

Not just another unique strain of Black Madeira. Notably different, with an alternative provenance. Considered to be a superior strain of Black Madeira, directly from Portugal.

Bluemalibu: Kelby, I remember that Keith himself did a side-by-side comparison of his Black Madeira fruit that he had sourced from Portugal, vs. the fruit from his tree that he had received from Jon, and he was only able to detect a very minor difference in flavor between the two... but a marked increase in the robust growth and rooting of the Portuguese strain. I want to say that he had received his tree directly from abroad, as another F4F forum member had lamented to him that he hadn't been as lucky as Keith, seeing as how the USDA had confiscated his like Portuguese specimen after several months of phenomenal growth.
