The Caromb Black Fig

The Caromb Long Black Fig, historical culture and emblematic the Vaucluse territory, is a product of subtle and generous flavours.

The Caromb Black Fig, also called the Douquiera Negra or Perroquine is a large sized fig variety (6 to 8cm in length and 4cm in width, with an average weight of 70 grams), with an elongated shape, very sweet and a particularly delicious taste. Its thin skin is a deep blue-purple and its flesh a pinkish red. Juicy and fragrant, it has a good performance and displays remarkable storage qualities. Summer fruit par excellence, the Caromb Long Black Fig sees its consumption grow each year.
But current production is insufficient to meet consumer demand, only 100 tons of this fruit are harvested each summer. The brotherhood of the Caromb Long Black Fig federates the production chain and works for the promotion of the fruit to consumers.

Generous, the Caromb Long Black Fig gives two harvests, the first in the beginning of July, the second around 20th August. Some orchards being more or less early, the fig is continuously available during the summer season. These features make the Caromb Long Black Fig an upmarket fig, now packaged in attractive packaging that preserves its storage and facilitate its marketing. Eaten fresh or cooked, the Caromb Long Black Fig does wonders. Its delicious flavour and nutritional qualities make a fruit that is increasingly popular with consumers.
