  • Petrovaca fig

    COLD WEATHER STIMULATES ONE TO LEARN OF COLD TOLERANT FIGS.SO,I was browsing German fig info and came across cultivar"PETROVACA" said to be from Bosnia and taken to Denmark and "more cold tolerant than BT". Does anyone know if it is present in USA and who might have it?Would like to give it a try myself.

      Does your Petrovaca possess any good traits ? Or is it simply"another fig".?

        I haven't tasted any figs from mine yet as I only had 1st leaf cuttings last year and although they made figs, they were too late to ripen... That said, the variety comes from my native land and thus has special meaning to me. I wouldn't put it into the premium fig category such as BM, FP, IB and so on but it is not a commodity fig like Brown Turkey...

          Ok. I’m intrigued given ercan’s recent post and seeing photos of petrovaca. Is anyone in the states still growing these?
