Description

[The figs have quite a bit of brown in them when ripened, this might very well be Paradiso Bronze.  Exquisite flavor. Original cuttings from Jon from Figs4Fun.]

All my figs are container grown in Wisconsin.  Cuttings were taken in late November after trees had gone dormant and have been stored in a fridge at 37-40 degrees. You are bidding on 2 unrooted dormant cuttings of Paradiso.

Ira Condit describes Paradiso as:

Paradiso is a Neapolitan variety, disseminated near Genoa as Albero d’Oro. Trees were rare along the Riviera, according to Gallesio, but some were grown in Provence. Savastano noted that trees of Paradiso were grown primarily for production of the first crop. In his account, Vallese reported that it was well distributed in Lecce Province, but he did not give descriptive notes of the first crop.

The leaves are of medium size, generally 5-lobed.

Brebas (according to Gallesio) medium, elongated; skin green, with white flecks; meat violet, like that of Dottato; pulp light rose, delicate; flavor exquisite.

Second-crop figs (according to Vallese) turbinate, slightly oblique; ribs present on lower half of the body; stalk rather short; skin greenish yellow, shaded with violet on the ribs, especially on the sunny side; pulp wine red, very sweet. Fruit produced over a long season, from August and September to December and January.
 

*********************************

I’ve been growing and trialing figs in southwestern Wisconsin for 30 years. My focus was on container figs which will ripen in Wisconsin without a greenhouse, but now that I have an unheated hoophouse & I’ve been putting many varieties in the ground.

I  run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has 17k+ members.  I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.
