Is it an early fruiting tree?

Coll De Dame Noir Ripe Fig Picture
Noire De Barbentane Fig
Mike it was semi sweet but not much of anything else sorry to say. The figs usually have a little berry type aftertaste .
Hu lol us old guys eh ? Yes i do recall your screen name on figs4Fun forum hope thing are well with you.
Anna the VdB not is no longer in yard it was a Ronde the airlayer made is growing well and being given to dentist later this month.
Poor picture today with this old camera but here a few NdB figs.
One nice and ripe the other 2 less ripe as one can see.
What i do not care for is the creaminess of this cultivar at least in our yard as it reminds me of coll de dame noir which i grew some years back and no longer in yard.
Not saying they look or taste alike they do not just the creaminess is the same.
Coll de Dame Noir as example below from 2017
Here below NdB
I was reading your discussion of Noir de Barbentane buti dont understand what you mean by creaminess 🤔. Anyways it's fine as I don't think I will ever have a chance to grow it. Pasteliere is good fig I like it a lot, here in Canada one only can get the unk Pasteliere, I was going to find out the little history about it, but I was waiting if a I can successfully grow it and most importantly ripen a few. It did dropped a few figs and still there are some just all of the sudden turn color at half inch diameter and dry out.
There was 2 figlet's that shriveled on same fruiting branche, the one that's ripe on picture was third fig.
The fruiting branche was pinched at 5th leaf.
Chat next time, must bo now.
Bluemoonlight ours came from Bass which came from ucdavis no longer in yard.
I have heard of the unknown type of pastiliere but do not recall the history of it.
Years back i grew a cultivar called NEGRETTA then someone if i recall correctly on figs4fun showed theirs called Negretta and i posted that is not Negretta as the interior and outside was not the same.
Unfortunately they kept the name and just put Unknown in front of it so now we have UNKNOWN NEGRETTA. There is no mistaken a genuine Negretta as i still have many pictures of plant its leaves and figs.
As for the creaminess what i mean is the texture when eating the fig best description i would say is like slimmy / slick not in a bad way for lack of a better term.unlike most figs texture but it really depends on how ripe that particular fig is when picked.
great looking figs, as usual. what varieties have you decided are ’keepers’?
Going into next season keeping
Hardy Chicago- dependable sibling from original many years back from Paradise Nursery
Violet de Bordeaux
Ischia Black -UcDavis
Black Tuscan- Still Trialing
Cravens Craven-Still Trialing
Colonel Littmans Black Cross-Still Trialing
Scott nice to see you posting .
I, like you keep Hardy Chicago and VdB (EL) around as they are so dependable. I am trialing Panache and Olympian for fun this year. I'm in 6b Virginia now, so all in pots, shuffling.
I am eager to see which Black Madeira type makes your cut. Find us one that is earlier, doesn't split so much, and still tastes great. I made varietal fig jam out of Black Madeira for a few years, hoping the taste would carry over. It didn't. I like the jam made from VdB much better.
