    Could you post any photos/feedback on this fig, please? What is its history?
    I remember good things about it but cannot find any traces of the description.
    Thank you!

    Interesting, many views but no replies. Is it a real fig? Anybody has it? Could you shed some light, please?

      Apparently this fig doesn't exist. Sorry, I couldn't help it.

        I have gris Olivette. I got it from Bass. I have yet to taste a fig from it, but it is healthy. It is a three year old tree. I think he mentioned it was a Baud fig. Beyond that, I don't know much about it.

                  Ah! That means my spelling was off since the Olivetti search does not return anything. Thanks, guys! Awesome!

                  Anybody tasted it?

                        Just had my 1st ripe one yesterday. I have 15 Grise Olivette fig trees in 20 gal pots.

                        Reddish brown, medium-large figs. Solid center, unique flavor, I can't put it in a single category. It had a mix of sugar, honey and berry flavor.

                                  I do not know who the seller is but it seems the Sid's one is the correct fig.
                                  Maybe grown in some funny conditions it becomes yellow inside? I believe it should be red though

                                    The outside color and fig shape look correct. They are tan brown to reddish brown. Size is 70-90 grams. They always have those white strands in the fruit. They add a marshmallow-like texture that I like.

                                    ​​​​ The flavor is much better than you would think, by looking at the outside. A don't judge a book by it's cover fig.

                                    Here is another one that has a less red interior. This one was around 90 grams. I got my 15 cuttings from Marius.

                                        Here's an Olivetti Grise. I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

                                          Gris indeed! How does it taste?
                                          I think it needs to be on a sun more, the red is missing

                                          I tell my employees that if I someone hints at something there usually trying to tell you something in a nice way. Is that the point of this? Or do I resemble that remark?
