    I found this fig today and had to post, as this fig doesn’t get a lot of attention. It is a rather large, excellent fig, that is somewhat early and doesn’t split or blow up. Out of the many top tier figs I have tried, this one has been in my top 10 for many years. It is just an awesome fig, and the flavor is unique. This variety grows fast and produces well for me, and doesn’t spoil easily like some others. It is a beautiful fig, and I consider this a must have. What a delightful fig!

        Thanks, really solid all around fig with excellent flavor! I am about 1 and a half hours north of Harvey. We do have a perfect climate for figs here, so we see excellent quality figs.

          Jon...gorgeous looking fig. No wonder Harvey's friends gravitate to that variety (in reference to his videos). I have yet to sample mine (I have several on grafts, but none on rooted plants). Hopefully in a couple days I'll be able to try one!

          The color of the peel is very unusual, to some extent paradoxical, it seems that the fig did not ripen from the eye to the stalk, but vice versa! A beautiful variety. Does he have a story?

            Yes, this fig is unusually beautiful, and is unique with color and taste. Harvey knows the story.

            It’s strange that it doesn’t get the attention, I couldn’t get them when it came out with cul noir and then they fainted, cul noir is another one I lost but why doesn’t anyone post about it anymore?

            The reason it is in my top 10 is its an all around fig, beautiful, really good at everything, and super good!

            Newbie2figs Mario, to be fair, it was getting some really good press a couple years ago and I remember it being one of the most sought after varieties during Harvey's sale. Here's a post Evdurtschi made back in 2019, which ultimately led me to acquire it. Thanks, Eric

          At Harvey's we usually head back to this tree after tasting zillions. It and Violette de Soles are both awesome and very productive figs. Mine are still a ways out because of the cool nights we have been having, but the tree is loaded. I can hardly wait.

            Thanks, it's like extra fruity, not true berry. Berryfruity!

          Is yours inground? Given your experience i will give it time, but my gigantic tree without any fruit is only rivaled by Galicia Negra & CLBC in shyness fruiting. Perhaps growing these varieties in Pots isnt best? Im Hoping next year it explodes with fruit. Your pictures look great 😊

            For the record, I have my CCN in a pot and it was not shy to fruit this year. It's interesting to hear other peoples growth and productivity experiences with varieties and it makes me wonder if we sometimes receive "lemons" that never really show the true characteristics of that specific variety. Regardless, if you're up for an experiment, I can send you a cutting off my tree in the offseason to see if it performs better for you? I'd be interested to see the results.

            Thank you. I have several grafted on in ground trees. Also, Have had several in pots that fruited fine. Could this be a water/fertilizer problem?

            Im eager to fruit this & def not trying to undermine. Best fruit prob to come! Its 2nd leaf here in 15 g pot &very lanky.

            I’ve often wondered about lemons. I have branches that explode w fruit & branches nextdoor w 0 fruit. Do zero fruit branches make zero fruit progeny? Seems to fit the “sport” description in reverse

          Depending on conditions, some new trees will push growth for 3 years before setting a good crop. Some do not. Personally, the ones that grow well before producing figs, eventually produce superior figs, due to the fact the tree has plenty of leaves to get high fruit quality. Some trees set figs the first year, and unless decent growth, the figs will disappoint. A rule with growing fruit trees, wait at least 4 years to judge your fruit, as this is when it comes into its best quality, size, and fruitfulness.

          Jon...picked my CCN yesterday. Super sweet, but very little acid. Somewhat of an unusual looking fig, but definetely a keeper!

            This one gets more flavor slightly more ripe. It picks up some acid and is top notch.
