Beers Black, Black Mission, Violette de Bordeaux

Description

Seems to be a synonym for Black Mission (Franciscana) or Violette de Bordeaux, depending on the nursery.

A fine, large, black fig that is a splendid performer. The deep red flesh is sweet and has a distinct flavor. It has a medium sized eye and is excellent either fresh or dried. Fairly hardy and well adapted to the South and Southwest.
