The best way to solve this ''problem'' is to graft your beloved variety. It will grow like crazy and pretty soon you will taste the right one !

First of all ... don't report for all Russia. Secondly... You can translate it as '' Black Fig from Russia'' and I don't see anything strange in it . I have also many Figs of Russian origin and without ''specific'' names. So, they are ''Russian '' figs for me . The Figs travel  all over the world and there аре hundred varieties which got their names from the immigrants who smuggled them to the Coubntry many yeras ago and are doing it even them the names of their native villages and towns . The Best part is that the Figs does not lose their taste from the ''names''  !  И вам , Господин професор пора это знатъ, хотя из Туапсе этого не видно !

Bacorinho. Described and figured by Bobone (1932) as commonly grown at Loulé’,

Portugal. Figs turbinate; stalk short; skin green, with obscure violet tint; pulp carmine,

coarse; quality good.

Badalhouce. Described and figured by Bobone (1932). Breba crop especially good;

fruits large, pyriform, greenish yellow; pulp carmine; texture fine; quality very good.

Second-crop figs not described.


Belmandil. (syn. Cara Lisa). Described by Mello Leotte (1901). Name comes from

bello, “fine,” and mandil (roupa), “linen,” in reference to the texture of the skin.

Specimens collected at Loulé, Portugal, and described by Bobone (1932) under the name

Cara Lisa, were very similar, and probably identical to Belmandil.

Breba crop none; second crop requires caprification. Second-crop figs globular,

without neck, smooth; stalk short; color green tinged with violet; pulp carmine; flavor

sweet and agreeable; quality good.


Cachôpeiro Branco (probable synonyms are Lampo Branco, Vindimo Branco, Santa

Catarina, Roma Branco). Described by Mello Leotte (1901) and Bobone (1932);

illustrated also by the latter. Cachopo, described by Mello Leotte, may also be the

same, although he reported the second crop set fruit without caprification. Brebas

mature in Algarve from the middle of May to the end of June, while the second crop

ripens in the middle of August.

Brebas pyriform to turbinate, with thick neck and short stalk; color greenish yellow.

Second-crop figs oblate-spherical, without neck; pulp rosy chestnut; texture coarse;

quality good.

Carvalhal. Described by Mello Leotte (1901). Name refers to a fig of the Carvalhal

estate. Tree producing abundantly first and second crops, the latter being artificially


Leaves 3-lobed, with violet stipules. Brebas large, pyriform; skin violet; pulp rosecolored.

Second-crop figs smaller, globose, of same color as brebas.

Castelhano Preto (syns. Euchário Preto, Castelhano da Rocha). Described by Mello

Leotte (1901) and Bobone (1932); the latter illustrates three different forms, as grown at

Cacela and Silves in Algarve.

Figs turbinate to pyriform; stalk up to 1/2 inch long; color dark violet; pulp dark

chestnut, coarse, sweet; quality good.


Castelhano Branco (syn. Euchário Branco). See account by Mello Leotte (1901), and

description with illustrations by Bobone (1932). The former states that the word

euchário is from the archaic eucha, “chest,” and caixa “case”; i.e., “fig of the case.” He

also gives Euchário Preto as a synonym; but Bobone points out distinctions in size,

color, and flavor. Both require caprification and produce a second crop only.

Castelhano figs are turbinate, rounded at apex; color green, obscurely tinted

chestnut; pulp carmine; flavor agreeable; quality fair. Season medium. According to

Mello Leotte, these figs, properly matured, are unrivaled in quality, and bring high

prices in the market.

Comadre. Regarded by Eisen (1901) as the best white drying fig of southern

Portugal. The term “comadre,” however, commonly designates a grade of dried figs,

and not any distinct variety.


Cótigo (syn. Cótio Tinto). Described and figured by Bobone (1932), who stated that

Mello Leotte (1901) regarded this variety as a mutation of Cótio, producing colored

rather than green figs. Second-crop figs green, with violet spots; stalk medium; pulp

carmine; texture coarse; quality good.

Cótio (syn. Malaguenho Branco). Described by Mello Leotte (1901) and Bobone

(1932)—the latter with illustrations—as the most important commercial variety of

Algarve. The orchards of Lameira are composed almost wholly of Cótio trees. At

Cacela, it is known as Malaguenho Bravo.

Breba crop none. Second-crop figs medium, turbinate; neck short and thick or none;

stalk short; color green; pulp carmine; texture coarse. Quality good, especially for



Dois à Fôlha. Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932) as a common Portuguese

fig, so named because two figs appear in the axil of each leaf. Figs are globular, with

short stalk and greenish-yellow skin.

Lampeira (syns. Portoghese, Lampas, Figue des Confiseurs). Described and

illustrated by Gallesio (1817), Gasparrini (1845, as Ficus pachycarpa var. lusitanica),

Pasquale (1876), Mello Leotte (1901), Eisen (1901), Simonet et al. (1945), Tamaro (1948),

and Baldini (1953); the last with illustration of leaf and brebas. It is also figured by

Tamaro. According to Gallesio, this variety was very common in Tuscany, especially at

Florence, and was figured as No.17 under the name Lampas Portoghese. Eisen praised

it highly by stating: “What the White San Pedro is for Andalusia in producing the

luscious brebas, the Lampeira is for southern Portugal.” It is probably this same variety

which Bobone (1932) described and illustrated as Figo Burro, with the following

synonyms: Burro, Gentio, Roma Preto, Bispo, Cachôpeiro Preto, Bacalar Preto, Lampo

Preto, and Vindimo Preto. Lampeira was once introduced into California, probably as

P.I. No. 18,871, and fruited at Niles, but no later records of its occurrence or behavior in

this state are available. The following description is after that of Simonet.

Tree moderately vigorous. Leaves small; deeply 3-lobed.

Brebas large, about 3-1/2 inches long and 2-1/2 inches broad, pyriform, with

prominent neck and medium stalk; average weight 102 grams; eye large, open, scales

violet; color greenish yellow, tinged with violet on sunny side; skin glossy, rather thick;

meat thin, white; pulp rosy amber, with violet shade toward the eye; seeds rather

numerous. Quality excellent; appearance fine.

Second-crop figs medium or below, about 2 inches long and 1-1/2 inches broad,

pyriform, with short, thick neck; eye partly open, scales rosy; skin delicate, checking at

complete maturity, green flushed with violet; pulp deep red; seeds small. Second crop

negligible without caprification.

Moscatel Branco (syn. Pingo de Mel). Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932) as

a Portuguese variety, not grown commercially, but widely distributed in Algarve. The

name Pingo de Mel, “honey-drop,” is sometimes given because of the honeylike gum

which exudes from the eye. The trees generally produce two crops.

Breba crop small; fruits pyriform, with short, thick neck and short stalk; color

yellowish green; pulp red, with traces of violet.

Second crop heavy; figs pyriform to spherical; skin smooth, somewhat puberulent;

color dark green; pulp red; texture fine; quality very good.


Moscatel Preto (syn. Bêbera). Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932). Known as

Moscatel Preto at Coimbra, and Bêbera at Cacela and on the island of Madeira.

The tree produces two crops. Mello Leotte (1901), on the other hand, described

Bêbera as a variety which does not produce a first crop, and the second crop as

requiring caprification.

Brebas oblique-pyriform, sometimes much elongated; neck thick; stalk short; color

violet-black; pulp dark carmine, streaked with violet; flavor sweet and agreeable.

Second-crop figs pyriform, elongated specimens unusual in having the internal cavity

narrowed at the base rather than rounded; stalk short; color green toward the stalk,

violet on


Passanudo. Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932). Second-crop figs medium,

turbinate or oblate; stalk very short; skin yellowish green, smooth, dull, commonly

checking when mature; pulp carmine, coarse, of agreeable flavor; quality good.


Rebanquio. Described and figured by Bobone (1932) as a pyriform, green fig, with

red pulp of good quality.


São Luiz. Described and illustrated by Mello Leotte (1901) and Bobone (1932) from

specimens grown at Loulé’. Second-crop figs turbinate, with short, thick neck and short

stalk; skin thin, of fine texture; color violet-black; pulp light red; quality very good.


Sopa e Vinho. Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932) as a Portuguese variety,

producing one crop only at Cacela in late August and early September. Figs medium,

turbinate, with short, thick neck; stalk short; color green, tinged with violet; pulp

carmine; texture fine; quality good.


Três um Prato. Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932) Collected in Algarve, and

believed to be of the Smyrna type. Figs medium, pyriform, with prominent neck; skin

greenish yellow, smooth, sometimes checking; pulp rose-colored; flavor agreeable;

quality good.


Urjal (syns. Capa Rôta, Branco). Described by Mello Leotte (1901) as Urjal, a

corruption of the word argel, signifying “soft”; i.e., fig of the soft skin. Described and

illustrated by Bobone (1932) as Capa Rôta, with synonyms as above.

This Portuguese variety has two crops.

Breba crop small; fruits large, pyriform, green; pulp amber. Second-crop figs below

medium, turbinate, without neck; stalk medium; pulp coarse in texture, amber; quality


Verdeal. Described by Mello Leotte (1901) and Bobone (1932), the latter with

illustrations. A Portuguese variety, producing a good second crop in August. Figs

medium, short-pyriform to oblate, with or without short, thick neck; stalk short; color

dark green; pulp carmine; quality fairly good.

Hi ! Regarding Três um Prato description.... I don't know why it was described like this...! I have this variety brought from Portugal and it is nice brown color when it ripe , HUGE fruit, very sweet.

To put it short..... go to a Dollar store and buy a Syringe there ( they have it in my store in CT )  It comes with a big needle. You suck the water into it and stick it in your rubber sleeve to water your branch without unrapping it !. Do it several times during the summer to keep it moist inside , even if your wrap is not tight !

Hi !  Just let me give you some ideas... go to the Dollar store and buy a foam or plastic Pumpkin, cut it in 2 pieces and you get a propagation ''spheres'' I usually drill 2 opposite holes and then cut it . or for plastic I usually use my Solder ....( and for the bottles too ) You can also can buy in the same store some package or 5 Aluminum foil  cups which are easily used fro the same air layering purpose. Talking about air layering propagation I think it is easier to use  some moss, wrap it in the plastic bag, then you can use some aluminum foil as an addition to keep it cool .  I use a Syringe  also from a Dollar store  to water this ''package ' during the summer which makes it very convenient. But if you want to be inventive , just look around , You can use almost everything for your project ! Just whatever is convenient for you ! Do not waste your money !

I'm doing my best to resist the urge to water....I just not at the stage where I trust myself to tell between what is damp enough but not too wet. I tried a moisture meter a while back but it was a piece of junk. It read that the soil was bone dry when it was clear it was soaking.

There is always risk that the Cutting will not take ! Even if you plate it with Gold ! Right now I have some Cuttings from Spain. I planted them in the same soil each ,in separate pots under the same conditions. One Cutting is already have good leaves and side Branch, roots and its practically is ready for transplanting into a bigger pot or simply let it keep growing till next year. Another Cutting is sitting in the pot ,looking alive but no any hint of growing anything...buds, leaves or whatever. Another Cutting has a very small leaf starting to grow but it is the same size (very small ) already for 2 months ! and other 2 Cuttings have nothing which can tell me that they will grow in the future. This is a good example..all Cuttings came from the same tree, the same Branch , the same time of the year. They were planted into the same soil with the same ''humidity, the same care and the same light etc ! You can never tell if the Cutting will grow successfully ! You can only use your and your ''colleague's experience, knowledge from different sources and your own . Most of the times you will be a Success !! But don't be disappointed if you fail once in a while ! This is mother nature and this is life ! No warranties ! Good luck !

Hi Guys ! I have Tres um Prato Fig tree from Portugal and it has a huge dark Brown Fig fruit as Breba (Breva)  I read in the Csience article that this Fig has green skin ?? And in description it says that the Fruit is medium size ??   Can you tell me what you know about this 3 in 1 Plate Fig ??

Some of these figs probably were visited by the wasps of the caprifigs you sent me, but some were not (they were too small at the time). I'm curious to see the differences between the caprified and the non caprified ones (they all should develop as i remember you mentioning this fig is a Common and doesn't need the wasp)

I also remember that you mentioned in another thread that Sofeno Claro was also a synonym to Três num Prato. I have Três num Prato in a pot from another source and the leaves seem different (no figs to compare though, maybe next year)

I can't wait for them to ripen. When is the usual maturity date for this fig in Algarve?

If I were you I would cut all branches but one and grafted all of them with different Fig cuttings. You have plenty of time to prepare for this. Read and learn on the Internet on grafting ( especially Figs ). During the winter buy, find, cut from your neighbors etc ) some Cutting . Keep them in the lower fruit box of your refrigerator in the  a little bit damp paper towel (watch for the mold sometimes during the storage ! ) In the early spring, right before the growth of your ''Tree'' graft them on each branch of your tree. Do it closer to the ground not  high  ( you don't need a leggy tree ( right ! ) Don't waste your life and time  on  your tree! Figs can give you fruit even in the first year and if you don't have any fruit for 7,s just waste of your time !  You can leave on branch of your tree growing just to see if anything happens in the future with it !.... It will be your own experiment without harming your crop!

Hi everybody ! Just wanted to add couple words. You can use anything for air layering which can be filled with your stuff and which has a round- ball or oval shape . Of course the better choice is something like a ball which allows you to put the half spheres ( or squares )  together and then make a hole in the middle ( I use a welder from a Dollar store ). It is much better and easier than to make these cuts you provided in your pictures.You can also make the same type of cuts like in your pictures at the top part of the paper cup and after you install the branch you can put a cap on the top . So, there are many ways to use different stuff for the air layering and it only depends on your imagination !! Good luck .... by the way check some Dollar stores there are plenty of stuff for your ideas..

Hi Guys.. Don't want to defend anyone but it is too early to be a judge on the Cuttings just looking at them . Wait till they grow and if it is a scam... take action... but I have my doubts that you can tell just looking at the cuttings that they are from the same tree or worse that they are of the same Cultivar.. You sound like a professional with 100 years of experience.. Are you an X ray man ?? Nobody in the world can tell the cultivar or variety just looking at the cuttings. without many other things, like leaves,fruit etc ... It is very arguable field even between specialists.. Sorry!

Hi everybody. Just have couples spare minutes and after reading your discussion, decided to share some info also.. First of all just want to tell you some real truth of life...sometimes  even human being die (from hundreds of known and unknown reasons..) -lets accept it  Secondly..of course it is good to experiment sometimes but do not forget old style techniques and methods. I will give you one example. I keep my Cuttings  in the containers covered from all sides with damp wood chips.. I water them slightly several times during winter storage . Don't even ask me what I see in the early Spring! The sea of Roots... but at the same time under similar almost ( practically ) identical conditions, some Cuttings in the same Container have no Roots at all!  I am  also 100% sure that the main reason for the Cuttings to die is over watering !!!! The second reason is drying out of the Cutting. You can use covering with the soda Bottle , or any other type of Containers suitable for these mini green houses, but check them regularly for Mold . I also used to leave only One bud above the ground level. When I want to have several Plants from 1 cutting or branch I put ( bury ) them horizontally and thus, soon I have several new plants sometimes even from each bud of the Cutting. not over water !  To multiply your own trees or from your good neighbor's tree the best thing is Air layering with the use of peat moss, laying down a branch on the ground or you can use any cup with soil fixed to this un skinned spot of the downed or  vertical Branch.    Hope it will help to increase your rate of success in this endeavor.

The top photo shows a closeup of the diseased leaves on the first two of the 489emma cuttings to manifest.  The bottom photo is of the third (formerly un-diseased cutting).  However, today I can see the disease is beginning to show up in the third cutting too.  The middle lobe of the bottom left leaf is beginning to discolor the same way the other two cuttings did.          

I also took pictures of my healthy cuttings ( all from sources other than 489emma), but I don't think posting them would be informative.

To recap, all three of the cuttings I received from 489emma are diseased.

Its interesting to know what university you graduated from to give this diagnostics . ? I grow Figs many years and it was me who sent you these cuttings. I invite you in the summer to taste my Figs. I have about 30 trees in the ground and many in the pot. I sent you good ,healthy cuttings from a healthy tree.  You have good leafing in the picture but do you have roots there enough to support them?  I don't like to give advices but before you blame someone publicly,` you' d better learn first.

Just stick it in the gound,  leaving 1 bud outside .Put a pepsy 2 liter bottle with the cut bottom on top .Water it well  , cover it from the sun and forget about it for a week or 2, dpending on your climate (when it is hot, water it once a week...) when it is not keep it a little bit moist but not overdo.
