Sounds like you have good taste in figs!  Wish I had some of the figs you're looking for - or even some of the ones you have to trade.  So sorry.
Wish List: The best tasting, cold-hardy, highly productive, non-wasp variety - whether I can pronounce it or not - and another 5 acres to plant figs on.

HI, Andrea, what do you have maybe we can make something happen.

I don't have a list of all my figs.  Should probably make one.  But the ones I have were gathered for their cold hardiness and production, not necessarily taste, and are mostly the leftovers that didn't make it into the Fig Study.  I'm in zone 6b and plant mine in-ground at home, so if they can't survive the winter, they aren't of much use to me.  About half of mine are unknowns - just figs found growing locally in someone's yard that can die back to the ground over the winter but still produce before first frost.  I expect most of them to turn out to be Brown Turkeys or Celestes. The named (known) varieties I have are Chicago Hardy, Black Mission (hasn't produced yet after 2 years in the ground, so unconfirmed), Tena (bought at Lowe's with a "White Marseilles" tag but it's clearly a Tena and has only produced 1 fig in the last 3 years), Improved Celeste, Celeste, Peter's Honey, possibly an LSU Strawberry (unconfirmed, no fruit yet), and maybe a Nero (name was a bit vague, came from a friend who got it from Baker's Creek "rare fig collection" years ago and has since lost the order info).  So, not a fancy fig list.

Of the local unknowns, there are a couple that may be interesting to you.  The one we call Goodman-Israel Unknown is my best producer every year.  It's a honey or sugar fig, vigorous grower, begins producing in mid-August and cranks out small figs up to frost.  A friend saw it growing in a yard in Goodman, Missouri and stopped to ask about it when the house was having a yard 5ale. The homeowners said that friends of theirs had gone to Israel years ago (decades) and brought back a cutting.  It did so well for them that they gave a tree to these people in Goodman and it had been growing there for years as well. I have a very small (neglected) plant that I could ship.  It roots easily if you'd prefer cuttings.

Bogddy's Alfa Unknown will have a few cuttings available this winter or I might have a rooted plant but it would likely need to go into a different pot to ship.  You can read about that in the August Giveaway section of the forum.

I do have several more varieties, but they are so young (only been in the ground since mid-June) that they haven't produced anything and don't have a branch big enough to take a cutting.  If they survive this winter, I hope that they'll be established enough to produce fruit and cuttings next year.

Let me know if you are interested in any of these.  Your Noire de Barbentane looks appealing to me.
