Looks good, I wonder if it will improve in following years. It's one I've been looking at also.

This fig was highly rated, i thought the taste could compare to Black Madeira.
I guess i can cross this off my WL.

Figs_Italy,
I would not necessarily cross it off your list quite yet.  Multiple factors will play in a figs taste.  Age of tree, whether it is the first few figs of the season (later figs typically taste better than the first one or two), temperature, growing zone, lighting, fertilization, diseases, soil type, fig wasp in the area for caprification or not, and the particular tree itself - some tree do better/worse for unknown reasons to us.  It is almost better to try it yourself or ........get the tested results from someone like JD n Steve who have tested many trees over several years.  That is again, if you live in their, or similar, growing zone!

Keep figgin!!
