Barese White, Columbo, Colombra, Colummone, Colombone, Columbaro, and probably Colombo Pazzo, White Barese

Description

(syns. Columbo, Colombra, Colummone, Colombone, Columbaro, and probably Colombo Pazzo). Described by Semmola (1845, with illustration) by Gasparrini (1845) as Colombro; by Savastano (1885) as Colombo; by Vallese (1909) as Colummone, with illustration of leaves; by Siniscalchi (1911) as Columbro; and by Donno (1951b) as Columbaro. According to Vallese, the names Columbo, Colombone, etc., are probably applied to different varieties with a profuse breba crop, commonly called “colummi” or “colombi.” Savastano stated that caprification is indispensable for Colombo; Vallese, however, expressed doubt in the matter, since in some districts the practice of caprification is extended to all varieties, whether they require it or not. De Rosa (1911) found that Colombo Pazzo required caprification Donno describes the two crops of Columbaro in detail, but does not mention caprification. Colombro is grown in central Lecce Province and near Cape Leuca.

The tree has light-green terminal buds and mostly 5-lobed leaves; see Donno (1951a) for account of buds and twigs.

Brebas not described by Vallese, but reported by Savastano to be small, spherical, green in color. According to Donno (1951b) the brebas are large, pyriform, light green in color; pulp light red.

Second-crop figs (after Donno) medium, 2 by 2 inches, spherical; stalk up to 3/8 inch in length; eye mostly open; ribs numerous, elevated; skin color light green; pulp red. Mostly consumed fresh.
