Description

About this VarietyZaffiro is an Italian honey fig variety originating from the collection of Fig Art by Nikky. This medium-sized, flat fig is known for its rapid ripening, going from swelling to fully ripe in as little as five days, making it ideal for areas with short growing seasons. Zaffiro figs are resistant to splitting or detaching from the tree during heavy rains, retaining their honey flavor and thick texture even in colder climates.

The fig is dark purple with a contrasting white or yellow pulp that has a lemon custard appearance, hinting at its citrusy flavor. Zaffiro's flavor profile is complex, featuring notes of nutty, coconut, cinnamon, and persimmon. It is a vigorous grower and highly productive, producing a prolific harvest. The variety has a small or closed eye and broad five-fingered leaves.

Zaffiro does well in containers and is resistant to rain and humidity, making it a great choice for the South. It can dry on the tree and continues to produce even after die-back. As a common fig type, it does not require caprification. Zaffiro is a reliable and desirable fig variety for growers seeking a unique and flavorful fruit with excellent growing characteristics.

About This Auction: Fig tree comes well-rooted in a 4 x 9.5" tree pot. Roots are strong and well established. Ready for transplant into ground or up-potting when you choose. You will receive the fig tree shown in photos.
