    Very prolific, French variety. Excellent caramel flavor when fully ripe.

    Leon, is it similar to any other variety you grow or quite unique?

      Steve, to me it’s unique but if I had to compare another fig that comes real close to its flavor, it would be
      Barnisotte. They look similar too.

      Looks good Leon. I have a young Sultane that some say is very similar or a synonym to NdB. It’s a graft from last year that hasnt grown much so far…think I will AL the top off and see if that helps. Thanks for posting this variety!
