    aka



    Descriptions:
    This is Italian 258 is very similar to Bourjassote Grise but sweeter. It is medium to large size with a solid dark strawberry pulp and blue-ish skin color. It produces a drop of resin blocking the ostiole which keeps insects out. (look at far right fig). This tree is in it's third year and is loaded with figs. (1)

    This is one of my most vigorous plants that I have. A very rich tasting fig that is usually filled with honey.
    Grown in zone 6a and container grown.
