                I didn't know it was that hardy, good to know, thanks! Baud said it's not too cold tolerant.

                This plant is in it's 3rd year in the ground, but the last tree winters were very mild and temperatures did not fall below -15C*. last winter some of the top branches were killed.

              Ronde de Bordeaux. It was good, but these are still young plants so I wouldn't dare to rate it.

                I've had several of my RdB split before fully ripening, lacking the flavor it normally has. Yours look like it did the same. They are VERY good if they ripen properly.

                It was just like you've said. The figs that split were not ready, but had to pick them or loose them.

              Thanks for sharing the photos and info.
              Congratulations, the figs and plants look great.
              Do you provide any winter protection for the in-ground trees? Thanks.

              Very nice. Is White Vasilika different than Vasilika? I know The Vasilika from Belle Clare with thin fingers is different. I have the other one VS used to post about, and if I recall couple folks from Greece thought it was the true Vasilika

              I have this still very young Malta Black. It rewarded me with two very nice fruits. Not very sweet, but the most aromatic figs I had this year.

                I have 3 Panachee plants in the ground. The bigest two did not produse a single fig, but the third surprised me with few excellent tasting fruits.

                Pen, are your figs pollinated? They look fabulous!

                Pen, Nice looking figs and dog too.

                How old is your Malta Black? I hope to add that to my collection this winter and I was wondering how long i'd have to wait for fruit.

                  Mine is in its second year in a 5g SIP and I have had about 10 fruits since 8/27, has about 7 left to ripen. One of the more productive 2nd year plants I have

                  Nice Pen, thanks for showing some of what you are harvesting. Is that the Vasilika Levka?

                    Vasilika Melissi is the best variety I own. The only downfall is that it is late ripening variety and I have to wait so long to get to taste it's delicious fruits.

                      Any cuttings available on that one? Sounds interesting how would you describe the taste? Would they grow in zone 8

                        Sure it will grow in zone 8. The taste is sweet and figy. Cuttings to USA is risky but not imposible.

                      Violette Dauphine. A very good, mild semi sweet tasting fig. 9/10

                        A very young Black Bethlehem. I did not expect that these figs will ripen so I forgot to check them. So when I did I was surprised with 3 little over riped fruits with Excellent taste.

                          I agree with that Grise de St. Jean is an excellent fig. The one I have suffers with fmv, but still makes delicious figs. Yours does not seem to be so affected. Great varieties you have Pen, thanks for sharing!
