I believe it is common but the only way to verify this is to grow it outside California.
Last year I gave the Melissi to several people, would be nice to hear from them.

A one of a kind perfectly ripe Melissi! Very dark and intense.
On the plate surrounded by MBVS for a comparison.

A large fig, thin skin. Juicy with dark burgundy pulp.
Tastes like raspberry-strawberry jam.

The dried BM figs that you buy in a store most likely come from California, they ARE pollinated

Strawberry Verte, Adriatic JH and Sucrette UCD - that's a trio that is hard to beat for me. Quite similar but ripen at different times. Sucrette is a later fig but keeps baring the longest. Very intense taste , doesn't split and very productive. Highly recommend!

Andreasc,
Thank you for your questions.
I do not know what location in Greece this fig came from. I acquired it from Jon (pitangadiego, the owner of this forum). Maybe he knows the location of the mother tree?
The White Greek fig has only the leaves with long fingers, precisely like pictured in the photo with the single leaf. If it looks like a caprifig to you , it is not a caprifig, I am sorry. It also does not have any flatter leaves like Vardika , I do not think it is the same fig. The background of the pic with several figs has leaves of other variety, do not pay attention to those.
Let me take a photo of a branch tomorrow

Very pleasant and refreshing fig, peachy-cantaloupe-strawberry taste, large and very juicy. Quite sweet.
Came from R Watts. This is not a MtEtna type fig.
It seems there are different Zingarellas in circulation around

Pino,
I do have St Rita and Takoma Violet but they are in containers (the MBVS is in ground).
It wouldn't be a fair comparison since the ground figs are always better, bigger and juicier.

Yes, caprified but this is not required since it's a Common type

I have no problems with flies, just with the birds and squirrels.
I wrapped the entire tree in bird netting a few times and this keeps it safe.

It is a perfect fig for all zones, warm and cold, containers or ground.
The tree stays on a smaller size, very productive, ripens fast.
Tastes awesome like a strawberry jam and doesn't crack.
Highly recommend.
There are quite a few of Mt Etna figs out there but the Marseille Black VS always stands out.

It is a Smyrna but if you live in the wasp land, this fig is a must.
Very vigorous and productive, tastes like a cherry with strawberry.

I offered some seeds in the previous years and they seem to germinate fine.
Here one of the links is anyone wants to check:
http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/want-seeds-7138323?highlight=seeds&pid=1290694391

The seeds will be a mix of what I would have at the time of your PM, currently I have MBVS, RdB, Malta Black, Golden Celeste, UP, Aldo, and others.
The seeds are washed and separated.

I do not know what caprifig was used for pollination.
As far as the seedling outcome, please read online or on the forum, your may get a caprifig, a Smyrna or a Common type but no one can tell upfront what that will be.

Please post your updates in this thread, we would really appreacite them!
The germination time is about 7 days.

PM me if interested.

I think UP is responsible for about 50% of the fig traffic :)
It goes like UP -> Pastilliere -> wasp -> ...
and the photos are so spectacular that you can almost feel that cherry taste!

Is this a breba from this year or a main crop fig?

Full sun as much as you can and pinching after 5 leaves helps a lot.
I agree about the root bound approach but the watering can become tricky since the figs are very sensitive to the *consistency* of watering. Dry - wet - dry will not produce a tasty fig
