Blanca del Montseny
While hiking I discovered a group of aged and neglected fig trees located at the upper elevations of the Montseny mountain range.
||Under the local climate and condition of the fig trees, the trees produce small figs weighing 20 to 40 gr. The figs have thin, yellow, lightly fuzzy skin.
One of the varieties has pink colored pulp while the other one has amber pulp.It have shape of pear with a medium long stalk.
The fig is satisfactorily good to eat in expenses, it has a sweet and delicate taste.
I have been able to see other fig trees similar in the lands of the surroundings in of antique vines and in farmhouses.
Surely it was a variety of fig used for consuming dried, for having in this way a supply for winter.
These varieties are similar to them called Alacantines in Mallorca.
