Joualle Noire - Variety Review | A Great Breba Fig Producer

Updated: May 29, 2023

Joualle Noire is a very very good fig. Right up there with the Coll de Damas in terms of pulp thickness. Low sweetness. Long hang time it seems though and it is not immune to splitting or cracking.

The absolute first fig I picked this season was a breba of Joualle Noire. It's a new variety. Not entirely sure what to expect. It's a favorite of a commercial grower in Malaysia named Dato. I'm always skeptical of recommendations from other fig growers that I am not familiar with. You just never know, but boy oh boy if the main crop is anything like the breba, we've got a winner.

Particularly in the texture department. The Coll de Dama figs are the standard of excellence in regard to texture. They're thick and jammy, but thicker and more jammy than 99% of the other figs out there. The pulp is so thick that it actually reminds me of pancake batter. Like you're eating a cake that nature made that's in fig form. Truly spectacular.

Truthfully, this breba and other brebas are usually low in quality, but this one was up there with the best-textured figs I've had. Namely the Coll de Damas and Paradiso (Baud). The flavor was lacking, but that's what I think to be expected considering the circumstances.

I'm very excited, to say the least, to see more from this fig.

Stay tuned for an update later this season on the main crop and check out the video I published today on the YouTube channel:
