    #100 Perkounis-Large purple/black, red center from island of Mykonos. Grows well in hot climates.
    Originally a Class II San Pedro Type, producing large brebas only. Main crop was only
    females so none of the figs would develop. After experimenting with growth stimulant
    sprays containing a hormone to inducing specialty flower to become large for exhibition,
    Belleclare sprayed this into the eye of the female fig at halfway point of 28 day cycle and
    seven days later. As a result, a main crop was produced because the spray mimicked the
    male hormones. This occurred several years in a row and then Bellclare stopped for three
    years in a row and during that time, the tree adapted and produces self-fertile main crops.
    The hormone spray came from edible Landscaping, Afton, Virginia.

          I think you might be successful in making a separate post for this particular cultivar as well.
          Folks might look at this thread and just focus on the Belleclare list. Just a suggestion.
