Description from nursery: Among the most popular and widely adapted varieties. It has amber colored flesh and a yellow-green skin. Its fine quality for canning, drying and fresh eating, has earned it the name Italian Honey Fig.
Received plant in April from Raintree in a one gallon pot. I allowed the plant to break dormancy and leaf out and waited to plant in the ground until after the last frost.
