Resin Berry Figs (“Bordeaux”)

Certain figs are more figgy, resinous, than others, and a few cultivars – the “Bordeaux” types in particular, Resin Berry – may have more resinous taste, or aftertaste, than most. Ronde de Bordeaux, Violette de Bordeaux, Mission, Noire de Caromb, and the like, seem to have a more resinous flavor than typical, an aged or molasses-caramel flavor, sometimes described as figgy.
