  • BM "and" MB...

    I have a BM, late to ripen I know.....I am thinking of adding an MB.

    Aren't they very similar?
    Would it be worth it to have both?
    I have read that MB ripens sooner...but no experience with it.

    Also have RDB, CDDB, VDB.....sort of similar...

    anyone?
    Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

    Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

      If you mean MIB aka Madeira island black, I’m of the opinion that all of these black Madeira synonyms are all Violeta from Portugal. I wouldn’t bother getting it, you could just take cutting or air layers from your own black Madeira tree

            There’s Marseilles Black (MBvs) and Malta Black, both Etna types I believe. There’s also a Maltese Beauty, which I am personally trying to add. 👍🏼

          So MBVS is an Etna type, Black Madeira way later and different. I do think MIB (Madeira Island Black) is distinct from BM, BMKk. Then there is Maltese Beauty which is different as well😃

          And so it seems each set of initials equal 20 trees. We surely are lost.

          Oooh ok, we’ll if it’s Marseille black VS you want, definitely get one. I had one last year that made some small but tasty figs, it’s a shame the friends I gifted it to killed it🤨

            I'm leaning towards getting it...was just looking for opinions I suppose.

            Thanks for the info.

          FYI MBVS and Malta Black are both much earlier than Black Madeira; I have one of all three, and the former two are loaded while the last is still sitting at double bumps. I’ve tried Malta Black from a mature tree and it was delicious, I recommend it.
