  • Was The Mystery Ever Solved?

    Did anyone buy cuttings or trees from Just Fruits & Exotics labeled Black Madeira, which ended up not being Black Madeira (their own admission) ? How did the cuttings and trees turn out? How’s the fruit? Do we know what the variety ended up being?

    I believe the identity is still considered unknown but the tree produced quality fruit, very similar to CLBC. BIG BILL sells it as JFE BM NOT and I bought a tree from him last month. He has a bit of info about it on the site and you can find more with the google machine 👌🏼.

      A couple weeks ago I felt brave and used the googles but the results were all over the place. Some said it was another variety within the Black Madeira family, others said it was a mission type and so on and so on. I was wondering if anyone had figs from a personal tree they could share. I know PA figs has a video on his channel regarding it and loves the flavor but it seems the mystery still remains.

    This is a helpful thread IMO:

      I now think it may be Scott’s Black.

      The shape and coloring is kinda right for LSU SB but dying to see both side by side - cut open. Also, are the ripening times the same for breba and main crops?

    I have JFE BM Not from 2 different members and both are different. So far, one produces figs almost identical to BM but in the experience of the member that shared it with me, it performs different in her climate and it is more vigorous. The other one is a dead ringer for LSU Scott's Black. I am 99% certain that it what one of the mislabeled JFE BM trees is. I feel very confident that the other is an actual Black Madeira but maybe a healthier version.
