In Languedoc most varieties of figs have two crops, the early ones are prettily named figues-fleurs and come in June or early July; the later crop, figues d’automne, come in late August, September and October. A beautiful, well-flavoured, juicy purple fig with a long season, very popular in the south-west, is Verdane or Précoce Rond de Bordeaux, bearing little dark-violet, round fruits throughout late summer and autumn.
