A rare fig from Israel. Looks similar to Brown Turkey and said to have a nice slightly acidic flavor. Very rare. Nice well-rooted specimens from dormant cuttings obtained from Olga on figbid.
Described by Grasovsky and Weitz (1932) as a small Palestinian fig, spherical, with a short, curved neck and medium stalk; color yellowish green; ribs purplish; eye open, with bright-red or purple scales; pulp red; flavor subacid. Very much relished by the fellaheen.
