And now I will tell you little story about this fig..
I think Giorgio Galessio saw this fig in 1800 and he just was surprise about this double form or mutated for of this fig and decide to make a picture...
And this variety was not so rare up to few years back..
In North part of Italy was many trees of Dall'Osso, but one winter was very cold weather and kill all those trees..
Before this happen, figs collectors got cuttings and start they new trees..
Last year, was huge fight on Italian figs forum..
People start telling each other who have wrong ones and who have right one..
I don't come to this forum very often.. sorry..
but time to time I open and read..
And some people saying they think in they area this variety can produce different color, or taste. or even size of fig..
And I think they are right..
Plant what move from south area to north will need addapt to new climate or die, or be sick and weak..
So, because Paolo live in South Italy his plant have this black color on both parts..
Lots depend from soil, water and sun..
And also, not many people know, but Dall'Osso Fetifero producing only 15-20% of this double, or mutated form and I think in a beggining I think you will see normal fruits, but with age you will see more and more double or mutated form..
Now, people who got plants from me..
I now know both parts will look black..Just like Paolo..
I was hoping part near branch will look more green, but not, they look like Paolo..
He saying, this is normal, so much time pass from 1800 and this is how this variety look now..
I hope, I give info you are was looking for..
And say another Italian fig Piombinese.. Info about this one go back 400 years, but this one produce normal figs, no no pics..
I think we like to see something different..
Say like Jolly Tiger.. Most people want to get vegitated form..
I personally got myself not vegitated..
I just tired to kepp it in a shade and never see fruits..
So, now I got a normal one, so I can try it..
I collect figs, so I can eat them..
