I received a Panetta cutting one year ago from a good fig friend from Central Florida. All I know is that it came from the Lidia and Tatyana connection in Italy. The plant is now 4 feet tall with lots of unripe figs.
I think it's going to be a good one based on the first and only ripe fig it produced after the recent freeze we experienced.

You're right, maybe a name change is in order.

Frank it does look like a very nice find.  By the way, could you expand more on the "Lidia and Tatyana connection"?  Do they collect and study figs in Italy?

Rewton: they are fig traffickers. Frank: now for the bad news, I heard recently that due to a family tragedy, Lidia and Tatyana will be out of action for a long time.

Taste was good for a fig that ripened in late November in my shed after a freeze. It was sweet, moist and fruity. Projecting to a next year normal ripening period of August or September, it should be excellent, or so I hope.
