  • What is this green fig, Green Ischia ?

    Well I've gone and done it....I lost a tag from a pot. At one time I was sent a cutting that was successful of Green Ischia. I can't find that plant now among my tagged plants. Could this be it ? I think I picked it too early, but it was soft like ripe or getting ripe . Thanks !

    I believe Green Ischia is dark pink/red inside.

        Not Green Ischia.
        Interior is more like my White Marseilles (though that is complicated as I understand it).

          Hi Cheryl,
          Green Ischia is a green fig with red inside.. This fig is looking like White Marsailles.

            Bill this might be one you sent me. Did you send me White Marsailles ?

            I did not send White Marsailles. I will have to check my notes to see if I can find a match. Maybe Hollier, not sure.

            This leaf shape and the fruit inside and outside says this is the Lattarula/Italian Honey.

            Condit's White Marseilles has similar fig, but WM has different leaf shape.

            Peter's Honey is about the same as Lattarula/Italian Honey. But its inside color is slightly pink. Lattarola is also red/pink inside. Not sure about the linkage between Lattarola and Peter's Honey. Kadota and Conadria are even more reddish inside. Conadria is a hybrid.

              Well, what it is is what you get.

              I think Lattarula/Italian Honey and Peter's Honey taste similar. Pretty good. Some complain about Kadota and Conadria.

                Nothing that doesn't have a tag except this one, EXCEPT, well gosh darn when I first started rooting I probably lost a dozen cuttings or more, but I can't remember that far back .
