Description

Often misnamed Native d'Argenteuil. From southern France. Flavor is unique, with a hint of pineapple and other tropical accents. Can be difficult to root and a slow grower. May be good candidate for air layer and/or graft.

Bluemalibu @ OurFigs: This is a cultivar that I really look forward to each year. Hative d' Argentueil is a very intensely flavored fig... honey sweet, but with a perfect acidity to complement, and yet offset, its sweetness. The flavor is that of a lemony - berry syrup, and the skin is sweet and tender. The figs can be left on the tree to concentrate the flavors without fear of souring. Rating a 9.7/10 !

Ray Givens: A small, oblique-spherical violet fig with strawberry pulp. Good quality and dries readily. Condit has only a meagre description of this variety and I just acquired a plant likely to be this variety in Nov 1998. I expect to trial this variety with northern growers since it should be very suitable for areas with cool summers. It is/was grown in Argenteuil, a Parisian suburb, for market. Northern France is not noted for having warm summers.
