Madeleine des deux saisons Fig (1 Gallon Pot / Fall)

We found these large plump brown figs with succulent pink flesh, reliably ripening on the cold rainy coast of Brittany in France, where all other cultivars failed. They have proven to ripen each August in the Pacific Northwest. They are excellent eaten fresh, dried or for conserves. It is also called Angelica and is from the Anjou region. It will also do very well in warmer summer areas. Like many figs, in cold damp climates it is susceptible to botrytis. It is called Madeleine of "two seasons" because it produces not only the "breba" overwintering crop in August but also a fall crop in October which like most other varieties, does not usually ripen in cool summer areas. Like many other varieties, it appears to be hardy to about 10 F.
