  • CDDG - it is that good

    I got a few ripe Col de Dame Gris for the first time today. These are the first figs I have had from this young tree. Let me tell you how good this variety is - normally, we do ripen figs this time of year but they generally don't taste nearly as good as they would during the peak of the growing season - but these were so good, they were nearly my favorite fig this year (just behind Malta Black). I could imagine how good this variety is during the late summer months. The figs had such an awesome balance of sweet, acidity, and strong berry taste.

    Can't wait for next year.

            Picked the last one of these bad boys from my tree. Can't say enough about this fig. It is my favorite this year - and it ripened in December!

              Very nice! I just acquired 2 cuttings on a trade last week. I was told this variety could be stubborn in the early stages of growth. I'm assuming just after the rooting phase. Have you all had this issue?

                  Very nice looking, call it an early holiday gift! Was the plant still leafed out? I put some of my plants into storage with a few unripe figs, and have been pleasantly surprised by some ripening and actually being edible.
