About 7 years ago, while in Athens, Greece, our guide asked if I liked figs. I said I loved figs. He asked if I would like some fig trees from the Acropolis. After I asked him if he was crazy, I said sure. He drove to the fence around the Acropolis, climbed up on his car, and broke off about 10 cuttings of a really large fig tree inside the fence. It was January, so I couldn't see any leaves, but the tree was truly a tree you could climb. I brought the cuttings home (didn't get arrested at the airport), and rooted the cuttings. I ended up with three thriving fig trees. This year, about May, they produced a tremendous number of figs; very large, nearly black, red centers, and very tasty, although somewhat stronger flavored than Brown Turkeys. They ripened by the first week of July, and immediately started producing more figs. The second batch didn't fare well and I didn't keep any. SO! Large black, red center, early ripening, from the Acropolis. I can't find out what kind they are. I wrote the Acropolis Museum, but they didn't answer. The best I can determine, they may be Vasilika, but I'm not sure. I want to propogate them and share them, but I'd like to tell folks what kind they are. Any ideas?
