We obtained this fig from southern France where it was recommended as a good choice for cooler summer climates. It has proven to set a summer ripening breba crop in the cool Pacific Northwest and is also favored in England. In warmer summer areas it also ripens a fall crop.
The small to medium size oval shaped fig has dark purple to dark brown skin and strawberry colored flesh with a delicious flavor, good for fresh eating or drying. The tree has an upright shape. It is also known as Noir de Juillet.
