  • Bourjassotte Gris main, A+

    This is the first one for me, I didn't know what to expect, the fig broke any expectations.
    Large and not hollow, doesn't split, the skin is thin and ripens quickly, the taste is intense just as the looks.
    Highly recommend it.

    Gorgeous fig! I love the color, and if the flavor was even half as good as it looks it would be a keeper.

        If gris is gray its color is true. Beautiful fig.

          Delicious looking fig...
          Is it caprified? Thanks

            Thank you, all!
            Yes, it was caprified but I believe it is a great fig outside the wasp area too.

                Did you get that from Gary by chance? I have a couple that I rooted, supposedly from Prusch Park via CRFG.

                  Netstars read the thread, its mentioned in at least two places that my tree came from Gary who got his cuttings from the Prusch Park Bourjasotte Grise, which to my knowledge is the only true source in the USA version of BG

                  Agreeing with everyone else, that Fig looks so awesome. That dark red/scarlet color is the best with the greyish-green outside. I want a grey Fig anyway and if this one looks like that even if not caprified then it could be the one for sure

                    Glad to see B Gris produce for you, Igor. It's a great fig in or out of wasp territory. Even so, Mine were uniformly disappointing this year. It grew very well out of dormancy and set a large crop...and in late June I made the mistake of up potting it. I didn't disturb the roots much but it still shed many of its leaves and hose figs it did ripen were all bland and somewhat like cardboard. Did the same thing to Socorro Black and a couple of other not quite as reputable figs, so I know it was due to up potting a fairly mature tree too late into the hot season. Every year I am humbled by my gardening mistakes. Still ate a lot of good figs this year.

                    Rafael, Igor's B Gris is originally sourced from Prusch. That's where the fig cuttings for most Northern California CRFG scion exchanges come from, and is where I picked it up a few years ago. Last year it was easily one of my top five figs.

                      Thanks Neil, that's where Gary got the ones he sent me as well. I really look forward to this one!

                    B Gris was one of my more stand out figs this year also for a first year fig tree. I brought my tree in a pot with ripening fruit inside at night to keep the critters from getting it and the fruity fragrance from the two ripening figs filled the room. People had posted that it drops figs easily, but that wasn't the case here. It has two more ripening figs and I'm watching them carefully.

                      Here's my baby b. Grise that I purchased from Wills. I sure hope it is the same clone.

                        Nice, just won this from one of Rafed's auctions, this makes me very excited. Does anyone have any pics of an un-pollinated BG?

                          Anyone have any idea if this has the same flavor profile as Bourjassotte Noire like the Col de Dam varieties do?

                              I was going to ask the exact same question as ross.

                              Another semi-related question: How does the flavor profile of Col de Dame Gris (or Noir) compare to Bourjassotte Gris (or Noir)?

                                That fig is just beautiful! It almost looks like it belongs in an old, European painting.

                                      If you remind me, I'd be happy to layer one in the spring if you don't already have alternative plans.

                                    Looks beautiful, Igor! I love those fine cracks in the skin.

                                    I have a couple about to ripen, looking forward to tasting the first fruits off the tree.

                                          Yes, I did. I grew it, babied it, picked it, took a picture of it and just now I ate it. I was terrific. Soft, solid thru out, sweet like honey and so rewarding. Yes, I know that it was small and not much bigger than the penny next to it. But..... there are 9 more on my little 3 year old tree. What great fun. Thank you Mr. Greenfig for sending me this tree. It will be big enough this year to take a few cuttings from.
