    How about De La Roca? Supposed to be late. I haven't tasted the fruit yet but I have 2 rooted cuttings that I'm looking forward to. De La Senyora (Hivernenca) is supposed to be good too (and very late).

          Figo Preto, similar to the varieties you already have but from what I understand more productive! I’m still waiting on mine to produce, it’s still in its baby stages.

            Those are all top notch figs on your poll. I have never tasted any of them so I can’t comment on that. As far as price and availability go, the col de dame figs will be much cheaper and easier to find than Calderona or DSJG

              Do you have any CDDs? If not, I would go with one of those for sure! I do hear great things about DSJG though too...

                  I would say CDDB. It is perfect for long seasons.

                      Maybe not a late enough fig, but Bourjasotte Grise has a reputation for pumping out fruit over the entire season once it gets going, and it’s supposed to be a top tier fig in terms of taste. Also I just love the color of the grise figs.

                        Based solely on reading reviews, I’d say DSJG and Calderona would be the most premium varieties for your Phoenix climate.

                        I just spoke with Bluemalibu recently about growing in places where the heat doesn't quit, and CDDG was near the top of his list for our type of climate (using the term "our" loosely as you receive much more heat than I).

                        Col de Dame Gris, he shared, had the ability to take the heat, grow ridiculously fast, taste similar to one of his favorites, and ripen over a long period. I now HAVE to replace the one my gophers ate.

                          CDD Grise is the champ. Bulletproof variety and ripens into December. Fresno Ca zone 9.

                            I've had November and December figs on many varieties. Most figs that keep growing into fall will keep setting figs. And then keep ripening figs as long as it stays reasonably warm.

                            Most figs will grow into fall if they have enough water. I've got trees that grow until Dec and I have to cut off the late figs.

                            My best late figs last fall were Craven's Craving/BM, Burgan, Paratjal Rimada, and Bourjasotte Grise/SB.

                              I always have to smile when I see people describe an October harvest as "late". My peak ripening season for a wide range of varieties runs from the end of August through October. Something doesn't get to be called late in my yard unless It's ripening after Thanksgiving, along with the persimmons. The down side of relatively cool summers.

                              In 2020 my harvest of main crop was May 15 to Dec 15. It would have been longer but I needed chilling on stone fruit. So 10-20 is towards the end. But Nov and Dec are what I'd call late. I like that picture. Very pretty figs IMO and very tasty.
