Having caught an extreme, though not yet deadly, case of the fig bug, my wish list has shortened significantly.

One of the earliest ripening figs.

Black Madeira Strains

Craven’s Craving, which is similar to BM, only much larger. But unsure of taste & climate differences.

Though Figo Preto is used as a synonym for Black Madeira, apparently there is a slight difference in the two varieties – the Figo Preto requires much less heat to ripen.

Flat Black Madeira or Madeira Island Black?

Hâtive d’Argenteuil

Often mislabeled Nâtive d’Argenteuil. Can be difficult to root and slow to grow, but great figs.

Ice Crystal

This one is fairly low on the list. I may have included it merely cuz it seemed unique.
