  • Syrian variety called Sefrawi

    Hello, I thought I would share the photo of this variety. I've been looking for it for years, and finally found it. It's yellow and red pulp with delicious flavor.

            Few years ago the care taker of the ACSAD germplasm located in Syria shared some info on research they've done, on different fig varieties. I've donated material to them and while I was in process of getting some cuttings from them the war started, and hell broke loose. Now the germplasm is not functioning, and no clue what happened to the 200 varieties of figs they have. I'm eager to preserve whatever varieties I can locate.
            i was able to track very few, but so far Sefrawy (also known as Sfeiry) proved common type, and does well for my area.

              Hopefully they are not all lost and the germplasm comes back on line one day. With any luck you will be able to track them all down!

                  The Agency in charge of the germplasm is not a government agency, but they involved in research and preserving plants for dry climates. Apparently they're still active but the orchard that has all the figs, almonds, pistachio and some other stuff is not accessible do to rebels in the area.

                    I see.

                    That's a shame, hopefully things calm down in the area soon.

                      That is very sad. One bomb or missile from any of the participants in this terrible war could destroy the collection. So much senseless destruction and killing.
