Both of these were bought as Negronne . The first pix is of a Zaino's Negronne. The second was locally bought , grower Hollybrook. Are they the same ? Leaves look different to me as well.Thanks for any opinions .

I think the leaf shape looks within the acceptable range for both of them. However, to me the figs on the first one are a bit curious though. From what I can see there is no reddish blush to them, and it doesn't look like the eye is red either(of course the eye is a bit obscure).  The immature figs on the tree in the second pic are textbook IMO. VdB,/Negronne, Petit Negri all look like this.

Calvin that was my question about the eyes not being red whatsoever on the 1st. In fact they are  a light yellow. Sorry the pix on the 1st should be a lot better .

I have a tree that was sold to me as negronne and that has leaves and figs that are very similar to the second photo.

Sure will . The 1st one I just bought this spring . The 2nd I've had for 2yrs and the fruit had been what I thought was typical Negronne and although only had few last year , were very good.

both look fine to me. i have a VdB/Negronne (it came as VdB/Negronne.. i call it VdB, but it's original source is Paradise Nursery and they called it "Elegant Violette Black"). i see both type of leaves on mine. typically i see lot of second type of leaves early in the season, but usually by now most of the leave will look like the first pix.

I have 2 from same retail source. Difference in time of purchase is 2 months apart. Fig interior looks the same. One Negronne looks rounder & bigger in size than the other. Both taste & interior are identical.

Bump, what was the verdict here Pattee? Do you have any pictures of the first fig ripened, or both to compare and contrast?

Hi Calvin . No update at all - the Negronne in question actually aborted all it's figs . I'll have to wait until next season unfortunately and hope for better results. The only one that got a little larger , still hard ( but still fell off) was actually amber inside. Unripe figs of my true Negronne were darker and reddish at the same stage.
Thanks for the inquiry . I really wanted to figure out what it was - but hopefully next season. I don't have any thoughts of it being a Negronne at this point though.

Your first picture Zaino's Negronne is most likely not .
The eye should be reddish /pink even when the figs are much smaller than those pictured  -    not white as shown.

Absolutely Martin ! That was my first clue. Thanks. Will be interesting next season to get a ripe fig from it and if it will be a keeper - or not !!
