Hie all i found a nursery in Melboure that sells uncommon fig varieties called Bulleen Arts And Garden. They have the following rare varieties in stock now.

  • Black Adams
  • Black Adriatic
  • Deanna
  • Clancy's Blue
  • Dwarf Brown
  • White Genoa
  • Yellow Excel
**They may be stocking the Ishia black, flanders,Blue Provence,Red Conadria and Conadria within the next month or so. 

I picked up a young clancy's blue from them today for $11.95

I would say they are different. This guy has a Clancy and he shows us a picture. It looks quite different to a blue Provence.

No worries. Did they have the black ischia there by chance?

Nah the only varieties they had were Brown Turkey, Yellow Excel, Black Adams, White Genoa, White Adriatic, a Black Adriatic (which i had never seen and i was quite intrigued), Archipel fig and a whole lot of Dwarf Browns. The man at the register told me they can get a lot of different varieties just if the customer asks, i thought that was pretty cool.

I had a look at the Dwarf browns the tag lists them as Brown turkey on the other side? which i thought was weird because the dwarf brown is a different type to the brown turkey. I got my tiny dwarf brown from Daleys in November 2016 and it has since developed 3 fruit on it. The ones at Bulleen might have been a typo. 

I thought the prices on the black adams and black adriatic were fairly steep @ $54. but i would still pay that price for the black ischia or a panache! haha

i would say that
black adams
black adriatic
clancy blue ,   are all made up names

there is an adams variety which is a syn. for daphne (spelling?)
which is a san pedro and needs the wasp for the main crop

b/adriatic i have never heard of.

i have trees named clancy and somebody has probably added blue,
still a very nice fig though.

yellow excell is usually just excell

if you get a flanders, very likely not to be the real one.

have many trees from differant sources bought as blue provence
but cant definately say any of them are the real thing yet.
 
i can supply small quantities of black ischia  if anyone wants.

On the Bulleen Arts And Garden web site there is no mention of those mentioned above on their fig list.
