Hey Paul, I too purchased one this year on the tag it says hardy fig. On the PC website they have it listed as Chicago Hardy.

Mine ripened the first fig aug 30th and quite tasty.

Harvey there is only one Laradek fig. It is a strain of English Brown Turkey that has survived some very harsh cold winters in the Czech republic and still ripened fruit.


Laradek, EBT Laradek & English Brown Turkey (Laradek) or Laradek's Englisht brown turkey is some of the variations I have seen the last 5 years of this fig.


if you google Fíkovník  Laradek you mind find some more info.

Hey Paul, Thanks I would greatly appreciate it.

Paul think those little guys like their new home. Now the most important is keeping them alive over the winter.

I agree figo branca does not make allot of sence. Figueira Branca or figo Branco yes.

I received cuttings in late 2009 simply labelled Branca from Sue, figs are tasty and huge.

In 2011 through some trades with a private collector in france I obtained a white genoa that resembled this fig quite a bit anyone else growing a white genoa that has the Figo Branca compared them to each other?

Francisco , growing up in Madeira cotios were the most common dry fig we had in the market and I remember certain times of year during the festa do Espírito Santo eating lots of these.

They look really good fresh another plant I lost sadly over winter.

Thanks for posting them

Hi Leon, my EBT just broke dormancy about 4 weeks ago I'm happy it's alive but worried it's running out of time to harden off new growth a real shame too as this is my personal favorite all around fig.

Leon this was my favorite white fig last season great flavor and productive. It took 3 years to ripen figs but it was definately worth the wait.

Lovely pics Francisco. I knew carvalhal was a San Pedro type but never though it was the same as lampeira. Unfortunately I lost my Lampa preta this winter but am rooting some Lampa Branca so far so good.

Also rooting some lampeira cuttings from France hope it's a real lampeira.

Also had the lampeira Harvey mentioned but never ripened any main crop for me the three seasons I had it.

Tam very good questioned you asked. Personally I have to say of all the pingo de Mel figs I grow they are very similar to peters honey/ kadota possibly the same or atleast related.

I have grown 3 kadotas from different sources some had mostly single and 3 lobed leaves the others 5 lobed also pulp varied in color from amber to carmin( rosey ). Size also differed for example kadota from grimonut produces lots of brebas compared to kadota from Monrovia wich rarely produces brebas.

I have a pingo de Mel from Madeira





Pingo de Mel from jardicentro online






I have two other ones that are young and have not fruited yet from the north in Porto and south algarve.

It would be funny if all 4 are different.

Oh tam here is peters honey from Monrovia





Hope that helps

I was fortunate enough to grow up eating these from a mature tree when I lived in Madeira. To be able to have my own now is a blessing thanks to Sue for discovering the tree in point Loma and sharing it with us.

What other figs are in the same league well so far the only one that comes close out of my own plants is bourjassote noire although I enjoyed the preto more but both are worth having and excellent tasting IMO.

Christian I will take pictures of the tree, its at my parents house.


Dust, I purchased this plant in 2010 as a 1 year old plant this season was the first time it ripened a fig.

James I too had Doree from dany it's a different fig I believe I grew it for 2 years leaves were very different I junk it eventually and only kept the one from baud.

Feigenbaum, yes it is a dwarf type grows mostly horizontal even when you prune it the new growth seems to grow to the sides instead of upward like most other figs.

Another outstanding fig,








This summer was one of the worst summers in terms of weather yet It was the season I ate the most figs the last two weeks have been eating dozens of figs daily.

Akram hope you get to taste it.

John , yes tastes as good as it looks the flavor is outstanding.

James hard to explain the flavor one of the better figs I have sampled thus far.

Francisco all my plants are out in the open no real shelter from the cold or winds or rain but I did manage to ripen a few late cultivars and tasted extremely good.

I wish I had a greenhouse to get them to start earlier.

Hi Leon, this is a young plant and it's impressive considering how young it is.

My EBT I would rate it 9/10 in flavor this little guy more like a 6.

EBT can compete with allot of fancy named figs.

James so far any fig I had this season that was syrupy was great tasting. I have allot of plants in 2 gallon pots that are root bound and it's tough when I know they require water but yet it will affect the taste.

Could this be weather related? I know figs that ripened in late aug and early sept were not that juicy.

Kind of weird how the cool nights has been making the figs taste fantastic maybe the trees know winter is near and want to ripen its fruits?

OMG, extremely sweet aromatic one of the best figs this season definately earned a spot.

Very syrupy, wish I could described it better but my taste buds just got a whopping.

Martin this one came from France and I also had a violette de sollies from France the only difference I found while growing both was violette de sollies had mostly 5 lobed leaves and my bourjassote noire has mostly 3 lobed and serrated leaves.

This is the violette de sollies leaf I had I died over winter good thing I had given my dad a little plant last year.
