  • Bourjasotte Grise Cold Tolerance?

    Hi,

    I am growing a BG in a pot and love the fruit. I do believe it is the same as Socorro Black, but yeah. My question is I want to plant this in my 7b location at the Jersey shore, but not sure of its cold tolerance. Was wondering if anyone around me is growing this in ground and can comment on how Hardy it is.

    thanks.

    Ross the Fig Boss has two of these in the ground in Philadelphia PA Zone 7a. So he's in the same zone as you. 7b will be even better.

      Thanks, but I believe he chops his down and covers with tarps, and uses low tunnels in the spring. I would be leaving this unprotected.

    Was watching some videos from Pete on Figlife and he is in Northern VA in zone 6b or 7a and he is growing Bourjasotte Grise, Socorro Black and Violette Sepor all on his deck in containers. They look productive for him. I'm not sure if he brings all his figs in for the winter.

      Well, Socorro Black (as you say possibly the same as BG) is supposed to be from Socorro, New Mexico. From what I can tell, Socorro, New Mexico is 7b, so I'd think it would be okay in your area, though I'd bet younger plants will die back to the ground at temps <10 degrees F.

        In April, I planted a Bourjasotte Gris in ground. There are 80 figs on it. I have picked a few. Will see whether it will do well after the winter. Definitely, I will take lots of cuttings from the tree just to ensure that the variety will survive in my collection.
