  • Unk. Chiappetta...Aka Cosenza Breba

    Here's one that I introduced back in 2012. I sent loads of cuttings and plants the last few years. Figs look and taste different from year to year. The figs on the mother tree that's in ground usually look different than my potted plants.
    They were nice and figgy and sweet. Very good for a breba.
    This plant comes from the Calabria area. Province of Cosenza.

    The reason I posted Aka Cosenza is because Jon sells it as Cosenza.

      Yeah, when all that name changing happened I thought it was Calabria, not Cosenza so now I have a few plants labeled Chiapetta/Calabria. When they fruit I'll need your help sorting them out.

        Art,

        I find it amusing that your plants in PA are ahead of mine in FL in fruiting, My Chia is loaded with fruit but nothing ripe yet
        Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

          Your Chia is probably main crop. I am way off from getting a ripe main crop fig from it.

          Since you left Pa it's turned into the Mediterranean.😃

        Hey Art. Here is mine from last week. It had an interesting flavor-hard to describe and not as watery as a lot of TMI sized figs.
