Violette de Bordeaux Fig

Cold hardy to Zone 5.

Small- to medium-sized, purple-black fruit with a very deep red strawberry-colored flesh and distinctive sweet, rich flavor. Excellent fresh or dried. Does well in container culture or small spaces. Selffertile. Our best cropper after winter die-back. With careful site selection and winter protection, can even be grown successfully in lower Zone 5! Everbearing crop starts in August, goes to frost. Zones 5-10.

Cut dead, broken and diseased branches from the tree with bypass pruners, lopping pruners or pruning saw. Prune in fall in the following years only to maintain shape, thin out crowded branches and stimulate new growth.
