Description

About this Variety: White Madeira #1 is a fig variety originating from the Madeira Islands of Portugal. Known for its large, yellow-green fruit with long necks and cracked skin when ripe, it is renowned for its exotic berry flavor, often likened to strawberry jam or jolly ranchers. The trees typically have three-lobed leaves and produce both a breba and main crop, with breba figs being larger and having a closed eye, while the main crop figs are smaller with a slightly open eye.

The bright red flesh of the White Madeira #1 is intensely sweet, described as having an almost artificial berry flavor in a good way, making it one of the tastiest white or green figs. Despite its late ripening, it is a favorite among fig enthusiasts. It thrives in hot microclimates and is recommended for growth in greenhouses, especially in cooler regions like the Pacific Northwest.

White Madeira #1 is self-fruitful and does not require pollination, making it an easy fruit to grow. It is hardy to temperatures between 0° and 5° F and can reach heights of 10-20 feet, though it can be kept smaller with pruning. The fig resists splitting and is not generally bothered by pests or diseases, though birds may pose a threat and Fig Mosaic Virus, a common benign condition in figs, may cause yellow spotting on leaves.

This variety was discovered by a Greek owner whose friend from Madeira gave him a few green fig trees many years ago. The figs are extremely sweet and jammy, with a texture similar to dried date fruits and a flavor comparable to ripened strawberries. It is often compared to the Black Madeira fig in terms of leaf and fruit characteristics but stands out due to its unique taste and resistance to splitting.

Overall, White Madeira #1 is considered one of the best Adriatic-type figs, producing a rich and delightful berry flavor, making it a true gourmet delight.
