  • Joualle Noire Main 2021

    Wow!!! What a fantastic fig. I ripened a few late late last winter and those were good but these, ripened in ideal conditions, are superb!

    I was blown away by the extremely dense and jammy pulp that had superb complex flavor. Not intense berry but very complex. Perfectly balanced sweetness and berry.

        Looks like a keeper for sure! Been a pretty vigorous grower for me this season, hopefully I get to try fruit next year.

            I do not know the story but I think Joualle Noire is from Dato and not part of the other Joualle series from France.

            For a long time I could not understand what these fruits remind me of And now I remember! A long time ago, on an expedition, in Yakutia on the banks of the Anabar River, I collected stones - red sard, yellow carnelian, sardonyx-agate. Outside, they looked like the skin of the figs in the photo, they had a gray surface, rubbed with sand and water. And inside each stone, after grinding, glowed red or yellow.

              Ok. I was very pleased with the first figs but today, it secured a permanent spot here!!!

              This one was overlooked and had gone a day or two farther than the previous ones I posted. I will allow all future ones to ripen like this.

              This is not an intense berry fig. It is more of a sweet fig but it is super complex. It was like buttery maple syrup with amazing mild berry flavor to round it out and the texture was even more dense and jammy. It totally coated my mouth. What a superb fig!

                Are all the figs getting that speckled skin? Super cool, hope it does that in my climate.

                  I was about to ask the same! I don't think I've noticed that on other figs.

                  I haven't paid attention to that yet. I will check later. It would be cool if they were like that. It might just be my climate though.

                  She’s a looker either way, but it’s cool looking

                  Love that speckled skin! Really looking forward to trying this one. It's been a beast of a grower.

                    With each new photo from S-Barbara my immunity against the collecting decreases by several points. In fact, I can no longer be called a completely healthy person
