  • German Black anyone?

    Got this one from a friend. Not much known about it other than Mother plant had German origins. Hoped to be somewhat cold tolerant (I have in ground now for testing) Mostly closed eye, smaller ant can get in it. Will at least partially dry on the tree. Good Flavor, not dis-similar from MBVS in flavor. Gets nice and Jammy as it gets riper / dryer. Any thoughts among known Cultivars?

      Btw, Bayern is a region in south Germany bordering Austria. So the name translates to " Fig of Bayern Violetta."

        Thanks, Looking on line the leaves appear very similar to B.V. but most of the fruit looks to be lighter in color, except the link you provided which is very similar. Perhaps a function of the area/weather here?
        I have a B.V. and will have to compare them when I get ripe fruit from it.
        Anyone else have thoughts?

          Yes, could be the area/weather, grown in full sun or partial shade or picked earlier than you did.
