I have Negronne, & it does produce a few brebas early on, but main  
crop doesn't come close to ripening in time.

I put all my fig plants along the south side of a concrete wall.  It  
makes an excellent buffer to early frosts (or late spring frosts) &  
such & I probably gain a week or more doing that.  It is also the only  
place on the property that phyllostachys aureosulcata makes it thru  
the winter in the ground.
