  • A fig named "Deep Purple"?


    I was working at the OC chapter of CRFG's fundraiser booth at Green Scene yesterday, and a member had donated a fig named/ labeled "Deep Purple." (Lots of members donated stuff in advance of the event but only a handful members work each shift.) I had never hear of it, but I was familiar all the other varieties for sale. At first I assumed it was just as description of an unknown variety, but another volunteer pointed out that the unknown ones were set off to the side in a pile of "orphans." Does anyone know if Deep Purple is an actual named variety? Just before the start of the event I quickly scanned my smart phone and couldn't find anything, but then we got slammed with tons of customers. By the time it quieted down and I decided to take a chance, it had be sold. Is Deep Purple something I should be on the lookout for at a future scion exchange? I really don't need more than a half dozen fig varieties, but if it's particularly ideal for the often gloomy/ lacking heat coastal areas, I want to try it. Thanks in advance for any info you might know.

    I've never heard of Deep Purple... The best source for any info would be the CRFG member that donated the Fig Cultivar.
    Good Luck.
