    Stella
    (Cordi)


    The Stella fig produces large elongated, pear-shaped fruit with deep purplish-red sweet flesh and yellow/green skin. Considered by many to be an excellent variety for cooler climates where it is a reliable producer. The story goes that this fig was brought to the US by an Italian sailor and at one point was considered lost but was recently rediscovered in Portland, Oregon.

    A large pear shaped fig that does well in zone 6a. Western Pa. Grown in a container. Leaves have long finger like shape. Very similar to Vasilika Sika.

      Art,

      In your opinion, what is the difference between Stella and Vasilika Sika? Do you have a preference?

    James, I think they are so close that if you are short on space, that I wouldn't have both. They both get very high ratings in my yard. They have that nice sweet berry taste.

      Art, do you have any leaf sample for both Stella and Vasilika Sika? I have 1 fig tagged as Dalmatie but I doubt it were Dalmatie. It have long finger shaped leaf, green to yellow elongated pear shaped (Got 1 that a little round in shape) and have deep red flesh. Thanks

        If it has a long finger leaf pattern. Then it's probably similar to Stella & Vasilika Sika BC
