  • Fig TV3

    Can anyone shed any light on Fig TV3? I was generously given one last year and am looking forward to seeing what it does, is, isn't or could be.
    Thanks in advance

    Francisco of Algarve, Portugal has said that this was the favorite fig of his father. I posted some photos last summer at https://www.facebook.com/Figaholics/...type=3&theater

      Harvey, so what can it be compared to? Is there something similar or nearly similar?

      Thank you Ian

      I can't think of any other figs that are similar. I don't play that game of synonyms, etc. as I believe there are thousands of unique varieties and just evaluate each variety on their own. Francisco says that this variety produces very good breba, perhaps I will have some this year.

    Francisco picked up on this thread and wrote me. He said he is "convinced that it may well be one of the many strains of Lampeira Preta needing wasps to pollinate the main crop.
    This main crop apparently makes outstanding dry figs much crunchy and flavored."

    Lampeira Preta is known also for producing high quality breba.
