Also known as Negronne, Violet de Bordeaux is a purplish-black fruit with rich strawberry pulp. Considered by many the finest tasting fig. Popular in the Northwest and West. Needs protection in cold winter areas. Good for home planting as tree is dwarf. Similar fruit to Black Mission, but hardier and a smaller size tree than Mission.
It is the best fig cultivar if you have a small growing space or wish to grow the tree in a container. Grown in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 10, this small fig grows to only 6 to 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide. The late-ripening fruits feature purplish-black skin, strawberry flesh and a rich, sweet flavor. Trees are ready for harvest in early fall, but if mild climate away from coastal areas, you can expect to enjoy a harvest in midsummer and early fall.
