Black Triana, Tarantella; Does anyone grown these?

jenia(5b NY)August 13, 2009

I have seen references to in the Boston area but can't find any descriptions on-line for their Black Triana or Tarantella. Does anyone on this forum grow those varieties? If so, can you describe them and/or their performance?

Many thanks.

These are varieties that Joe Morle sells. I would call him and ask. You can do a search on his name on the forums and a link to his site.

I am conducting fig cultivar suitability studies in South Louisiana. I grow the Black Triana and many other varieties. You can read about the Black Triana and many other cultivars on a current thread that is running on the figs4fun fig forum (link below). That forum allows post editing and I update my post on this thread almost daily as the figs ripen in my collection. I give taste ratings and fig descriptions in this post.

Never new until now a fig plant had that name.

Thanks, arigato. Yes, I know about Joe. Just thought someone on here might
have some hands-on experience with these varieties. I have read
Italiangirl's posts about his Paradiso but haven't seen anything about the
