This medium sized black fig is considered to be one of the most desired must have varieties. It originated on the Madeira Island in Portugal🇵🇹where it is known as Figo Preto, Violeta or Preto. It was brought to Point Loma, Ca. in the 1950’s by a older Portuguese lady where it was given the name Black Madeira. It’s jammy amber interior has has a sweet, rich flavor. This fig is considered a slow growing fig and requires a long growing season to ripen. Colder growing zones should have some sort of early start, such as a greenhouse or other controlled environment, to ripen it’s fruit. The KK variety Black Madeira is a more prolific growing and fmv resistant strain of Black Madeira.

I will do my best to protect the tree during shipping, however, I recommend someone to be home for delivery or arrange with your post office to have your package held for a pickup at the post office. Please gradually introduce your tree to sun, wind or temperature changes. I deliver trees directly to my local PO to ship.
In an effort to control the spread FMV by various mites, I have treated my trees with neem oil spray as a fungicide and with the spinoza Monterey Garden Spray as a miticide. Both are recommended for organic gardening. However as a precaution, I recommend that you isolate all new trees and plants from your collection for a short period of time to insure no issues. It is not unusual for fig trees to exhibit mild FMV.
