The cuttings listed here are known to me as Caralheto Preto. These are a super yummy fig that is consistently one of my top 10 figs. There has been some discussions about the Lungo del Portogallo being a synonym for this cultivar, but it has not been verified. You can read more about that here.
I introduced this find about a couple of years ago at OurFigs.com:
The tree was brought over from Portugal many years ago by a neighbor. The owner of the mother tree immigrated from Lisbon Portugal about 18 years ago and brought this tree with him. As you can see by the pictures, this tree grew very well here in zone 7. This is a delicious dark berry fig with a jammy red interior. The mother tree is very prolific and should provide plenty of figs through the fall.
One thing amazing about figs brought over by generational immigrants to consider: the immigrants are leaving their mother land, sometimes forever. They bring whatever they can schlep. Yet, they bring a fig tree which I believe must have such a unique and savory flavor to them they cannot buy here in the United States. Moreover, I would like to think it's their way of bringing some of their old home roots to their new start. Personally, I love collecting these family heirlooms as I believe there is nothing more authentic.

KYS - Know Your Seller! There are a lot of people selling fig trees and fig tree cuttings that are NOT what they represent. Sadly, you will not know until a year or 2 later when there is little recourse. Simple searches of usernames on the internet can prevent this.
