This variety, commonly found in French nurseries, produces two different crops. The first crop figs are large and long. They are green, yellow and red on the outside and pink-amber on the inside. The long crop ripens in early August, it is juicy and sugary sweet. The second crop is more round in shape and darker in color outside and more red inside. It ripens in late August. We can taste melon and table sugar. Longue d'Août is a prolific producer of large juicy figs.
