Cuttings for this fig came from BECKY ENZOR, owner of Drowning Creek NC Farms. She found it back in 2005 from Paradise Nursery of Virginia Beach, Va. (I have subsequently looked through their catalog and they no long offer it for sale, so we are most grateful to Becky for sharing this green fig with us.....and now with you!)
One of the best eating green figs around, and absolutely wonderful on a fresh fruit plate. Flesh is a very deep, dark burgundy with a taste that is both rich and with honey notes.
