    Other than being rare, what are the distinguishing features of this fig?

        Not to mention, if memory serves me correctly, Paolo mentioned that he prefers RdS to Panache.

          Correct

        Is it earlier than Panache? Will it ripen in cooler weather? Panache is iffy in many places.

            This is one of my favorites, it took me years to obtain it, not only is is a rare striped bifera, it produces fruit that was strikingly large in early part of summer, and resisitant to swd. For reasons that are not clear to me, squirrels and birds also stayed away from it in my garden. A really good honey fig. And prolific as well

              Rafael, thanks for your response!
              When does it ripen for you in your climate? Early summer?

            No mine had a head start last year so I cannot give a reliable zone 7b crop date. Also, as it was a first year tree, I had no breba.

              I will make a varieties entry for this one. There is an official Unifera version, but I have not been able to verify if the A version (Rigato del Salento PV), which Wills and I grow, is the same as the “Official” Unifera version I have documented that is from the Agriturismo Nardini in the Gargano in Puglia, and which has a piriform fruit shape that distinguishes it from Panachee.
