Oh Wow Dennis that's horrible, it was hard to look at.

Heres a funny story that will cheer you up, about 15-16 years ago the neighbours had a raccoon family living under their basement one morning their rotweiller got sprayed by a skunk right in the morning in the back yard and boy did he go nuts I noticed he was digging against the house and was like ok this dog is retarted.

Anyhow I went to school but due to a cold came home at lunch I looked in the neighbours backyard to check on the dog and it looked like a warzone there was a huge pile of dirt where he was digging and the hole was massive and dead raccoons all over the backyard. Those raccoons used to make a huge mess stealing our plums and our neighbours grapes guess they had it coming.

On a good note the dog was fine and we lived happily ever after.

Hi Paul, yes theres atleast 2 conadrias or more who knows. This was a gift from Adriano a couple seasons back very productive and great tasting figs specially when the temps start to drop go figure. PS after I posted this thread I went through my notes again and noticed I had purchased another Conadria from figsforlife out in BC so I went outside to check and sure enough its there no figs though but I will compare the two next season and see if they are the same.

Michael leave that sucker on there for another couple days the stem will eventually loosen up and you will notice the fig drop even more this one also started to get some skin cracks when I lifted the fig it came right off the tree. This trick does not work on Pane E Vino white or White triana if your not carefull with those two you might rip off bark and all lol.

Francisco, this was the first one I sampled and if they are generally this good then its a very very good white fig.

Elin , my parents recently moved and now my dad lives one block away I can walk there and enjoy his figs while hes at work lol I have allot of my plants at their house and they eat them as they ripen I have no problems with that. Worst part is my dad rubs it in all the time when he eats figs from my trees I haven't sampled yet and says how good they are and that he started an airlayer.

Frank, yes this is main crop.

George this is from two weeks ago same tree





I'm assuming its weather related for shape and color difference.

George the AF is from Adriano, it produces allot of brebas double the size of vdb from edible landscaping also main crop is generally bigger and more prolific.

Also ripens breba 2 weeks earlier and it ripens most of main crop.

James I unwrapped the tree later this year and it didn't help me at all. Plant broke dormancy 3rd week of may last year I had brebas forming early April. My inground blk Marseilles is starting to ripen now as well wich usually starts ripening late aug to early sept.

Next season I will unwrap them mid march like I have in the past.

Most o my figs in general are atleast 2-3 weeks behind this season

Tyler it's a dependable variety and tasty does real well in southern Ontario.

Hi James I too have been fighting with ants and wasps on this tree they have been driving me nuts..

Pete I thought I had taken a pic of the eye but I didn't. Eye is small but somewhat open I will take pics of the other figs as they ripen this one also seems to have a longer neck than the others on the plant.

This tree is in it's second season.

Pete, you are absolutely right I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. Truly is an excellent flavored fig and sweet can only imagine what it's like in an ideal climate.

First adriatic of the season I only wish it was like five times the size flavor is outstanding.

There are more ripening now and will be bigger but they do seem smaller this year for some reason probably because its been in the same pot for 3 seasons.

Thanks everyone, the flavor well this has been a bad year and thecool weather is not allowing the figs to taste it's best but even then, it was like a cross between a mission and vdb.

Francisco I believe the bêbera Branca I have from Madeira is actually a form of pingo de Mel I know the pics you posted are of the real Bebera Branca i think for the most part the fig we call bêbera Branca in Madeira might be dotatto main difference I found between the pingo de Mel I have and bêbera Branca and kadota is mostly the pulp color my bêbera Branca has carmine pulp while the other two have more of an amber color pulp bêbera Branca is by far the sweetest and drips honey from then ostiole when fully ripe.

This is a great looking fig, good find Tam.

As mentioned before gota de Mel and pingo de Mel do mean the exact same thing thing drop of honey.

Regardless both are are generally the same and honey figs with amber to carmine pulp.

This is something else looks great what ever it is.

Ps it is possible it's known as such in that particular town.

You should ask them where in Portugal this fig originated from.

Hey Grant, Mario purchased his plant from Adriano either 2009/10 but it was mislabeled.

I'm not sure what it is but what ever it is it originated from Adrianos collection.

Hi James, no I have not planted Norella inground but might eventually. I too have found colasanti dark has not been as sweet as other years this darn weather doesn't help either but Norella has been outstanding although they are a tad smaller than colasanti dark in size but make up in flavor.
