  • Noire de Barbentane

    I just tried my first Noire de Barbentane today, and it was quite good. The plant is young, started from a cutting this past Winter, and in a 5 gallon pot. A beautiful fig, and aptly named, as it is black. Large also, this one was 69 grams. Sweet with no seed crunch, thin skin, no complexity to speak of. Very good 1st fig that I'm optimistic will improve in time, and once it's planted in ground.

      I appreciate it, Mike. Still waiting on my Violette Soleis, which I've read is similar.

    Nice fig. Looks like one I need. Maybe a rooted cutting will come up on ebay sometime.

      So you say it is similar to the VdS? My VdS is slow with a fig production, I think I need to wait until the next summer. I will post a photo for sure in case those tiny figlets decide to grow though

        Hey Igor, Leon did a good post on the other forum, and it was brought up that Bourjassote Noire and VdS are close, if not the same fig. Noire de Barbentane and Bourjassote Noire are also close. Leon said he gave his VdS away, because it is so similar to NdB, but ripens later. My NdB has ripened, still waiting for my Violette Solleis. Sorry if this doesn't make any sense.
