“Jin Ao Fen” is one fig variety sold in China, but it is originally imported from California, USA. As I mentioned in a previous post about "Bo Ji Hong" fig, many imported figs were given a code name, but the original name was lost. “Jin Ao Fen” is variety A212. One online source I found indicates this is the same as Orphan. The "Jin" means golden, and "Ao Fen" is pronounced similar to Orphan. The name "Jin Ao Fen" is actually making sense as it is a golden Orphan fig.
This fig produces breba and main corp, but it is mainly for main crop production. It is a golden yellow fig with light yellow center. The breba ripens around June and main crop ripens from August to October. It is cold tolerant variety, based on China's location.
I don't have any experience with "Jin Ao Fen" or Orphan, so I can't comment if these two are the same.
Recently, there are few fig varieties coming from China. It is interesting to find out what those varieties are and people can decide if those are good varieties for them. I will try to post a series of China figs in next few weeks.
FYI, I don't have any of those China figs and I am not associate with any of those sellers. I just want to share the information to fig community. Enjoy!!
