Green house grown Nero600 in pot culture - roots in ground. Vigorous. Good taste.

VdB pictured with Nero600. Better taste is VdB.

Nice. I rooted a few Nero 600 (from a discount source), but many were stunted (fmv?), only kept the most vigorous one, here on sand vigour is a must...besides taste, which does best for you?

Well at least I know what to expect out of my Nero600. Frost killed my tree back earlier this year so I probably won't see anything for another year.

Very nice!  
Someone mentioned that in PNW VdB and Negronne are the same fig.  It seems in N.E. there is another VdB in circulation with very narrow leaves.

Hey Paul, I personally love Violette de Bordeaux and think when perfectly ripe is an excellent tasting fig and one everyone should have. I have never grown Nero600 to find out it's better than VDB is very interesting. I'm currently growing VDB AF, Negronne, Vista. All 3 are nearly identical but ripen at different times and Vista so far seems to have the better tasting brebas of the 3.
