Very valuable, high-yielding, healthy growing, twice-bearing variety. Also called banana fig. The first fruits are very large, elongated like a banana. The fruits from the second, richer harvest are slightly smaller. Is robust enough for our climatic conditions. Particularly recommended for wine-growing regions. The great advantage of this variety is the resistance of the fruits to increased soil and air humidity. Ripe fruits do not crack or rot even in the rainy weather.
Vigour: dense bushy growth habit, older trees reach a height of 2.5 - 3 m outdoors
Blossom: parthenocarpic, forms fruits without pollination
Fruits: of the first harvest are very large, elongated in shape, weighing 120 to 180 g. Initially green, they gradually turn yellow to golden brown. The flesh is light red, aromatic and very sweet. Fruits from the second main harvest have a rounder shape, a darker skin color and a weight of 60 to 80 g.
Harvest season: the first wave of fruit ripens in July and the second from mid-August to September, in warmer wine-growing areas until the end of October
Disease resistance: susceptibility to fungal diseases or pests is not known in our climatic conditions
Frost resistance: -15°C, one of the most hardy fig varieties
We should not plant young fig plants directly outdoors. Only after three years in the container with frost-free wintering are the trees stable enough to withstand stronger frosts. A sheltered, sunny location in the garden must also be chosen for frost-hardy varieties, which sufficiently protects the tree from cold northern winds. The soil should be rich in nutrients and well drained. It is advisable to provide winter protection, especially for younger trees. The root area can be protected with a thick layer of mulch made of leaves or straw.
