    I can’t answer if it is the same as Norland, but it sure seems to be the same as LdA.

      I agree Ed. I have both fruiting and they appear very similar, if not identical. Decent figs, BTW.

    I just picked this from my Niagara Black today. It’s the same in my yard as LdA and Nordland.

        I have had Longue d'Aout and Niagara Black growing in the ground side by side for years and agree they are the same. The only difference is that the LdA tree has a very mild case of fmv which the Niagara Black doesn't. I also grow Perretta which is at least highly similar to those.

          i was rather highly impressed with NB. but if it's same as LdA, LdA might be easier to get. not that i'm looking. i forgot where i got my LdA from way back when, but probably due to plant being so young and in a container, i wasn't impressed. i remember it being bland and chalky two years in a row.
