  • Fabrizia White from Italy

    Today I got to pick my first Fabrizia White from an air layer from last year. A short history of the origin of this fantastic fig. This fig comes from a town in Italy called Fabrizia and was sent direct to Luzzu from his aunt in Fabrizia. My good friend luzzu was kind enough to share an air layer with me.

    The fig has a perfect combination of sweetness and complexity to it and all I know is I want more of them. The fig develops sugar spots and drips honey out of the eye. A nice sized fig of 46 grams.

    Luzzu sent me a picture of one Fabrizia White that made a double fig joined at the stem this year.

      As the tree matures I am sure it will be even better.

        The problem with a grow list is that its keeps growing with all the good figs out there.

        Bravo_Figaro may look close but the figs are half the size. My Yellow Long Neck and Roberts Golden Rainbow have solid green figs that size now and no where close to ripening yet.

        Still young but it went from marble size figlet to ripening in 74 days.

        Tough growing here. I am revamping all my varieties to what works for me. I hope to provide ripening times for all my new additions.

        Any figs up there is an accomplishment.
        How long is your growing season?

        We get very hot here and my season starts about the second to third week of May to mid October but anything in October is a bonus.

      Nice looking fig. Not to be confused with the Fabric/air freshener namesake

        Keep in touch, as I've said I am constantly testing the newest varieties to see if they will ripen in a shorter season. I have been keeping track of days to ripen from figlet and I listen to the other members who track that data also. If I can learn from others then why not. No point growing a Black Madeira just for leaves...I should listen to my own advice I have six Black Madeira's lol.
