White Madeira Fig

$59.95$79.95

As delicious and infamous as Black Madeira is, we think White Madeira should be ranked right up there with it for its delicious and unique flavor. While we are somewhat partial to the darker skinned figs, White Madeira has a flavor that reminds us of strawberry jolly ranchers! Intensely sweet with an almost artificial berry flavor, but in a good way!

White Madeira Fig Tree

As delicious and infamous as Black Madeira is, we think White Madeira should be ranked right up there with it for its delicious and unique flavor. While we are somewhat partial to the darker skinned figs, White Madeira has a flavor that reminds us of strawberry jolly ranchers! Intensely sweet with an almost artificial berry flavor, but in a good way! One of the tastiest white/green figs we’ve ever tasted, though just like the other famous fig from Madeira, this one is a late ripener for us. Light green skin with a bright and full strawberry flesh. Plant in an intensely hot microclimate in the PNW or grow as a greenhouse treasure.

Given to us as White Madeira #1 for those of you who are interested in that information. We just don’t have any other White Madeira’s in our collection so we dropped the “#1”.

One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh Figs you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
