Looks superb! So what's your honest opinion  of preto vs black Madeira? I'm not keen on forking out the money for a kk if preto is pretty darn close

I have heard the Figo Preto is considered to be very similar to the Black Madeira? Any truth to that?

Perhaps more vigorous and healthier. Any splitting on Preto?

We have not experienced any splitting but she is a little slower growing and only has one crop
