Two years ago I received fig cuttings from a friend in Bari, Italy. One variety is called Fiorone di Ruvo. Here are photos of the first breva figs my potted tree has produced. I have an in-ground tree but it froze back and is not much larger than my potted tree only in bush form.
I just took these photos. When the figs have fully ripened, I will post more pics:

Here are photos of the same fig variety which were sent to me from Italy before I received the cuttings:

Nice brevas Leon!
I had one breva in the first year of my potted plant. In February I rooted one cutting and in Summer I got one breva!
Here are two photos of my plant the past summer. You can see one little autumn fig too. This fig was destroyed by birds or some bug so I can't say how it was.

This year I haven't any breva. It started to grow but it was dropped off by an unusual cold May.

Hello Leon,
That's one beautiful looking fig; I hope it tastes as good as it looks.

Seems a lot like Blue Giant. How is the interior color?

I have forgotten to say that my plant is a Fiorone di Ruvo too. Sorry!

A very beautiful fig and tree.
Usually size and taste are enemies. Is this the case?
I have seen that you use an identical finger ring than me.
Im waiting a new book about the Catalonian Fig's to help me to identify our own varieties and their history. I have other Catalonian antique books about how growing, recipes, varieties figs, lexical, fig proverbs,

I had Fiorone di Ruvo, it is a nice fig but, according to my experience, it is not a good producer in non-optimum climates. My climate is mild but a little cloudy and rainy, however no problems for other many varieties.

It seems to be a San pedro type fig; no autumn crop if not caprified. The last two years I haven't any Fiorone di Ruvo breva, because of this I decided to discard it. On the contrary, the variety "Gentile" another San pedro variety, gave a decent crop of brevas (so far it is only an small grafted branch), despite it was in a less sunny place.

Fiorone seems to be an excellent variety in its locality of origin (South of Italy) but, as fas as I seen, I don't recommend Fiorone di Ruvo for non sunny climates.

It seems to have better San pedro varieties for cooler climates, like "Desert King" for example (I haven't tested it)

Hello AXIER from Spain,Thank you for your valuable information.I still want to grow FIORONE DI RUVO fig tree in containers as I do with my CELESTE,BLACK JACK,BLACK SPANISH and ATREANO which I just purchased.All of my figs grow very good in Ohio in containers and I get a lot of figs from them.My BLACK JACK fig produces the largest figs,BUT THE FIORNONE DI RUVO produce very large figs.I would be very happy if I got only one crop of these figs only if they taste good.Are there any good varity's in Spain. Thanks Again

Hey Peak,
How is your Black Spanish is it similar to Black Jack.Is Black Spanish a large fig?Thank's

RE: Fiorone di Ruvo

Hello rob5020,The black jack and black spanish are both small fig trees and very good for container growing.My black jack and black spanish are different from one another and they have different growth habits and also taste different.The black spanish has much larger figs than the black jack,however I had very large figs from the black jack this the second season.The true and original fig tree of both is from California.Buy them from California or near bye.
