Fig variety Hardy Yellow
Ficus carica Hardy Yellow, Fig variety Hardy Yellowfrom Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria
This is a very interesting variety, that we found about 15 years ago in a private garden in the town of Assenovgrad, Bulgaria. It may be of Greek origin. Until we are able to determine its eventual official name, we will use the working name Hardy Yellow. This variety performed better or the same as Michurinska-10 during the freezing February 2012 when it overwintered with no damage in our experimental field.
The fruits are large, 100-120 gr, its flesh is amber, sweet and juicy. Thy are not very durable and it is recommended to consume them not far from the place of production. There are two abundant crops.
In summary, this is a great fig variety with delicious fruits.
