  • Valle Negra breba

    This is the Valle Negra that Maggie & Giuseppe in NY have. This was sent from Sergio in Italy. It's the long finger Valle Negra.
    This is a must have fig for me. Very rich tasting fig. Hard to say what it really tasted like. Maybe a dark berry/concord grape. My wife thought it tasted like a nectarine.
    I have an email from Sergio that states it's not Valle Negra, but Valle Calda. He made a mistake when he sent it to those two people. So to
    those with Valle Negra with long fingers. It's actually Valle Calda.
    I do have the real Valle Negra that Sergio sent over. It has a different leaf pattern and the figs are smaller and more round. I will post pictures of the real Valle Negra when they ripen.

    Looks good. Any idea if this is synonymous with Nero 600m? Anything that can help clear up the confusion around Nero 600m, Valle Negra, and Valle Calda would be useful.

      I can't tell you anything about Nero 600. I just recently acquired it.
      Valle Negra is a more round blackish fig and Valle Calda is more oblong with longer finger leaves. I think it's similar to VdB.

        I wonder which one Vito has, the one Vito calls Valle Negra grows like crazy.

          Sounds like there's a VDB-like fig going around variously called Nero 600m, Valle Negra, and Valle Calda. I have it as Nero 600m, photo attached. It does grow like crazy. The one I have in-ground on a very exposed bank came back from total top-kill while the 2 figs on either side of it never came back. It came back relatively late but is growing like crazy again, making up for lost time. The attached photo is from last year.

                Green guy, I will try and post picture tomorrow. Odds are your fig is a Valle Calda. Your are going to like it.
                Anything that comes from Vito is a good fig.πŸ˜‰

                    Hi everyone.
                    I would love a cutting of the Vale negra that came from me, I wound up without one.
                    Mine did come from Maggie.
