Violette de Bordeaux' is a naturally small tree with small to medium sized purple-black fruit and strawberry-red pulp with distinctive, sweet, rich flavor that is widely regarded as the finest tasting fig. Excellent fresh or dried. Self-fruitful and frost hardy. Good for small spaces or containers. Requires 100 chill hours.

Plant Care

Prefers to be planted in well-draining soil in a site that is protected from wind and frost. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency should be cut back once established. Needs more water in the growing season than in the fall/ winter when it's dormant. Fertilize in the early spring.
