Hi joe, bogisota is very similar to English brown turkey the other fig posted above is the same as bourjassote from what I have been told by more than one spanish source but do agree it looks allot like preto.

Then again Madeira island is only 500 km from the Canary Islands.

Thanks Vasile, I too have the same problems with all my inground trees even if brebas form the frosts usually make them all drop.

I never realized how much ital 258 resembles Adrianos Genovese Nero.

Vasile have you ever gotten ripe breba from your ital 258?

I have not personally grown this fig yet but looks like something I want I try in the future.

Thanks Guys, I too like this particular tree. It has some figs but don't think they will ripen in time.

Found another 2 photos of this fig, was labeled Italian fig "Brown Honey" sold by colasanti farms last year was the first time I seen this fig for sale.

Wow those figs look great Vasile, I lost all my coll de dames this past winter and am a little hesitant on replacing simply because of late ripening. I only sampled one coll de dame Blanc in 2013 and it was knee buckling good. With that being said I think I need to get me another coll de dame lol. My coll de dame grise grew like a weed the blanc was also a good grower the noire suffered from fmv quite a bit and struggled quite a bit for 3 seasons.

Greg in 2011 and 2012 it was left outside in the pot and it survived the winter wil minimal damage. Last winter it was in my dads garage right beside the door the 5 plant next to it all died and this one had no damage at all. The 5 that died were a 5 year old kadota, 4 year old black Marseilles, 4 year old white Marseilles, 5 year old moscatel preto and 4 year old hardy Chicago.

I'm sure the pulp color is due to cold nights.

Hey John, yes I bought 3 plants from the bearded lady one was supposed to be the same but purple the other two trees had green fruit so not sure if yours will be purple or the same as mine.

Dennis I did send cuttings to atleast 2 people in the east coast labbled as NGE#3 unk Dalmatia. Hopefully they will chime in.

Vladis thank you for the photos my unripe fruits had the same shape as yours and the first that ripened also looked like yours was not as dark as the one I posted pics of.

Chivas, I too believe Colasanti#3 and this fig I believe is dalmatie are one and the same I will take pictures of the plants today as a comparison.

Jdsfrance, yes the brebas were larger pulp was lighter in color and not as sweet but still good berry flavor.

The 3 other figs that ripened before this one were a little bit lighter in color but not too much but were just as syrupy. It ripened during a hot spell so could of just been a fluke? Unfortunately I do not have pictures of the other figs.

I will going to my fathers house in about an hr I will take pictures of this unk dalmatia and colasanti #3 for comparison.

Got this tree in 2011 locally it's origins is from Hvar island, Dalmatia, Croatia.

I believe it's the same as Dalmatie 1st image is when I purchased it 2nd photo shows dominant leaf last year I lost my tree this winter but my dad still has a small plant I will take better pics tomorrow.

Excellent flavor Like strawberry jam

Peter you are right they did stop quite a few years ago.

Daniel yes post#3 real EBT one of my best figs.

Thanks Grant I missed allot last year while I was MIA. I never grew southern BT but had heard it was similar to Celeste. It also had a few breba but only one ripened.

the first pics are of the EBT EL and the figs all had that shape and size this one was the darkest one to be honest. The others were a little bit lighter in skin color pulp was the same.

This pic shows the lighter color on the airlayer I did earlier this year.


The Second pics I posted is of another EBT I purchased localy a couple years ago.


Hey Peter, Could this be the same as the Hank Mathies EBT? I Believe miller nurseries used to sell it a while back as did Edible Landscaping.

Frank this is what I did late may early June to bring some of my dead looking figs back to life at my dads house and boy did it work.

I also did this 2 years ago on a few figs to get a longer season and It does work, just try and make sure none of the plastic is touching the figs or it will start to rott with the condensation inside the bag.

Hey Akram, yes I agree with you my other English Brown Turkey is a whole other beast. I would never get rid of it. The EBT from Edible landscaping is not a real English brown turkey.

Dave sorry to hear about your plants it does suck 5 plants or 50 just as painfull.

Jdsfrance:

My Dalmatie never grew too well to be honest, we had 3 weeks of -20C and colder figs can take a beating but this winter was cold and long. I do have an inground Colasanti #3 wich resembles and could possibly be Dalmatie I protected it as I always did with just burlap and a tarp and it had some damage but didn't die to the ground and is now a 6ft bush with atleast 10 branches.

Kerry, I still have Nardi Black, Enrico, EBT, Bebera Preta, Hollier, Desert King, Deleon, Vasilika Sika, O'Rourke, Smith, Florea, Hardy Chicago, Black Tuscan, Rosetta, Battaglia Green, Preto, Qila Saif, Lattarula, Kathleens Black, Pingo De Mel, Lampa Branca,VDB, BT-MD and a few others I cant remember right now.

I also have about 20 small plants I rooted this winter hopefully they survive this winter. A few new in the trials are cul Noir, Campaniere, Vidal, Longue Verte Daout, Pallas, Reculver, Salles.

Thank you Everyone for all the kind words and Offers really means allot to me, but for now I will have to pass as I need some time to figure out what I really want to grow.

I have a feeling this winter will be another cold one, so as a precaution everything will be going in my fathers garage.

I will try and answer all the questions when I get home as I am currently at work :)

Thank you all

thank you Rafael took some time to gather.

Hey Joe, no worries my friend. Im in no rush to gather everything I think by 2016 I will have a better collection with less varieties but do appreciate your generosity. I still have 50-60 fig trees more than enough for now.

James, long time no chat hope all is well with you. Yes I do remember that, that was harsh I now know what it felt like not a good feeling . I like you am looking at what survived this darn horrible winter and giving those varieties a second change. Funny how the ones I didnt pay too much attention too survived.

Wills, you are right not just for myself but also for all the generous kind hearted forum members who went out of their way to send me allot of these varieties and most of the time not even wanting money for shipping or anything in return.

I paid for permits phyto sanitary certificates in north america and Europe to get rooted plants imported into Canada legaly allot of money time and effort spent on this addictive hobby. Even got MR Pierre Baud to drive 120 kms to get a phyto to ship to canada lol oh the good times.

This is the second time its happened to me, first time in 2010 when we got locked out of our office and the junked all the fig trees I had in there at the time atleast 70 that time.

Hi guys, I will eventually gather some of those variants back.

Thank you for the offers but for now I will relax with adding too much plus having 2 small kids and a 3rd to be born in the next 3-4 weeks is making growing figs even more difficult.

I have a few young plants now that I will trial in my climate won't be putting any in my shed that's for sure.

Hey Paul you ever get main crop to ripen? Main crop is better tasting than Breba but breba is also tasty.

I grew this variety for 4 years along side Dusan's bronze Paradiso and found no difference both started showing severe fmv and died last winter. Very good flavored figs and very productive.

@paul

You know your not a real portuguese if your not growing couves in the backyard lol


@1king & Bob

The top end is pulled down to the ground and buried , the picture that shows the trunks those are covered with an A frame simply two sheets of plywood with insulation foam on the inside over the trunks and a tarp over the A frame. This past winter we had temps that reached -40 celcius.

Desert king is underrated in the northeast, Adrianos tree produces hundreds of brebas every year flavor is outstanding also can compete with allot of fancy named figs.

On rare occasions it can ripen a few main crop figs but not many.

@francisco

Francisco your making me hungry lol
