    Col de Dame
    aka Col de Dame Blanc


    Descriptions:
    Formally known as Col de Dame Blanc, this is a sweet and very rich-tasting fig. Fruit are on the smaller side but they sure make up for it in flavor. This strain seems to have FMV more than the other strains of Col de Dame present in the USA but it remains productive for me. My tree lived in a pot for 2-3 years and then got planted in the ground in summer of 2013.

    Unfortunately I don't remember the taste characteristics. I do remember it being a good fig. For me this tree is a fast grower. It grew about 7 ft in a year. It is grown in a 20 gal container in pro-mix bx w/biofungicide. Zone 6a Western Pa.

        UCD Col de Dame Blanc in ground in north Georgia 8a. This fig has a nice bright berry taste and holds up well in the rain. Bearing is enhanced by pinching as growth can be enthusiastic. Late spring freezes can damage this fig if grown in tree form.
