  • Melissi 2016

    A large very tasty fig, mid season or later for me, likes to split but a no big deal, thin skinned, some crunch. 9/10

    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 3 photos.

    The plot thickens lol. I just read an old garden web thread on Visilika, one being Melissi (white) and the other Mavra (dark). http://forums.gardenweb.com/discussi...queenfig-greek

    How do your Melissi leaves compare to Madeline's Green Greek? Nice fig btw.

      Interesting thread but mine look a bit different
      I have 2 Melissi figs obtained from different sources and the ripe figs the same but still not looks on those photos.
      The Madeline's has not produced yet, next year I will tell you

            I have the dark version (Vasilika Mavra) directly from Marius. Can't wait. Vasilika Melissi looks fantastic too!
