  • Kesariani, 27/08/21

    "Kesariani" was introduced to fig community long time ago (2012) by an old F4F member. He described it was "purple/black fig, red flesh, berry flavor, from the city Kesariani, near Athens, Greece. It is a no name fig, more than 20 years old, from somebody's uncle back yard".

    My first Kesariani fig is quite small, but very sweet and tasty, it has an interesting flavor that I do not know how to describe it. I like this fig.

    My Kesariani source is from Harvey.

    I'm strongly considering this one. Good taste huh? Seems like everything in figs comes from someone's uncle's back yard.

      I already picked it up. It's a pretty little plant so far. I got it from Jamie0507 and she got it from Harvey. So I got it from the best. But I do hear you Sod. I am probably now over-represented with Mt. Etna's because I also obtained cuttings for Malta Black, MBVS and Takoma Violet. Plus I got two cuttings per. Oh oh! Keep tamping me down Sod I think I need it.

      I got my kesariani from Jamie as well. You’ve got your bases covered. Except you need RLBV, Ciccio Nero, st Rita, Sayreville dark…

      I’ve got more etnas than I need. For what it’s worth, I’ve put these in the ground this year: sayreville dark, bi39, and Takoma violet. I’m reserving a spot for RLBV next year. Ciccio would go in the ground but it’s in a 25g pot and a little big to move just yet.

      I definitely need RLBV. Would love to try to grow that. We've got to talk sometime Sod. You have to give me a heads up on how that BI-39 works out. That's a variety I'd like to learn more about.

      Nice looking fig.

      The leaf shape is typical Mt. Etna shape. This may be related to the Syrian Ammary Black or Syrian Dark (Bass). That is the similar black skinned fig.

        I can vouch for the cold hardiness of this variety as I have it planted inground here in Maine and it has done well with protection-no die back and ripens a portion of its crop nicely

          How is the taste vs. other Mt. Etna figs?

        Thanks for sharing this one 👋🏽
        Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.
