  • Unknown variety

    Hey everyone. A friend of mine has a fig tree he inherited with his house and would like to know what it is. I have a feeling I may know but I’d love expert opinions on it. It’s a two crop variety. He said the main crop is sweeter than the breba, but it keeps producing until we get frost. Taste he said was like watermelon, but it sounds like the breba may be a little bland. They sure look good to me.

    Ok fine, I made a channel but it’s not all figs: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC2vAVzLns27I5JUiwpiPMUw

    Let the guessing game begin. Beautiful tree. Nice Japanese maple as well

      My guess is atreano but I have no idea.

        Atreano is a good guess. The leaves aren't a perfect match but they are close. I was also thinking it could be something similar to Brooklyn White. I have an unknown that came from someone in NJ that is very similar (possibly the same) as Brooklyn White.

          Conadria is probably also a good candidate.

          Rewton There mere mention of Conadria repulses me....it's my kryptonite. Thanks for ruining my day bright and early.....

          BlueEagle1967 do you mean you have tried to get this variety but have failed? Sorry to hear that! If I was growing it I would make you an air layer. Maybe some nice person on here will help you out. I am growing Unk. Mittica from Bill Laurie which seems to be an Atreano/Conadria type.

        Olympian maybe? I don’t have one, so no direct experience.

          This one doesn’t seem to match olympian. My olympian is darker with a yellow neck. Leaves are also different.

          Hey Bry. Oregon prolific is a likely lattarula synonym. Mine are yellow inside and identical to other Italian honey types I’ve had.

        I think you're right about OP. Ever eaten any local Osborn prolific? Have you ever heard of the Oregon Honey fig? Check it out on figs4fun.

          I don’t think atreano is an Italian honey type. Pics I’ve seen look green with the purple breba flesh bleeding through to the skin. I’m pretty stumped. I’ve never had Osborne prolific though. Not sure.
