      Greetings. I'm in zone 7b, and started with figs about 6 years ago, but started collecting during 2021 with 15 new varieties. I have three smith on the ground and had temperatures of 17 degrees here in Greensboro, NC this year. My Smiths are doing fantastic, looking very strong. I had some minor die back in other varieties like Violette de Bordeaux. I own a few BM, It 258 and Smiths. The It 258 is my weakest of the three varieties, slow development. The others looking strong (all of the three varieties I started from cuttings last year (2021). This year I add to my new collection about 10 new ones. I see many of your videos as well as Ross from Pennsylvania and Ben B's from Seattle and learn a lot. I try to collect the top 10 as long they are in the top 10 from more than one collector. Thank you so much from your teachings and experienced.

      In my small collection I have the RDB. First year in containers. Here in Denver CO zone 6a will plant one in ground next to a brick wall to see if it can survive the winter.
      Good video.

      Hi Lou, I'm always amazed and delighted watching your videos and they way you talk about figs. I know you're a retired teacher. I'm so curious to know what you used to teach? Thanks.

      RdB is quite popular in Europe, don't know why not in US. It is really a staple, foundation fig without question. It fully deserves it.

      I can't agree with the statement that they don't split much. My RdBs have been one of my worst splitters in humid and rainy weather here in PA. They rarely split last year since the weather was hot and dry but this year has been a different story. That said, they still taste pretty good when they split. I also don't agree that they taste so much better than the Mt Etnas. I prefer the taste of a lot of the Etnas over RdB. I do fully agree, though, that it is a must have fig. It's very early, productive, tasty, reliable, and a beautiful looking fig.

    • Bobby Fischer

      Hi Lou, you've been praising a lot RdB. How do you compare a perfectly ripe RdB vs Violette de Bordeaux (not often heard from you) in term of taste? And are they different taste? Thanks a lot.
