Italian Everbearing Fig History

Written by 

Italian Everbearing Fig


The L. E. Cooke Co Italian Everbearing Fig came from George Roeding, Jr. of Niles, California.  In 1901 John Rock imported Riviera Fig (Italian) to Niles.  It came from Thomas River and Son, London, England.  The L. E. Cooke Co received it in 1970 and began production in 1975.

The tree has strong dense growth.  The fruit is darker than Brown Turkey and Texas Everbearing.  The tree sets heavily with larger fruit than Texas Everbearing.  I believe hardier than Texas Everbearing.

I have liked this selection for its heavy set on a bush growth and easy to pick a very tasty fig.  It is a reddish brown color.
