Violette de Bordeaux Fig Tree
Pick sweet fresh figs twice a year.
The Violette de Bordeaux Fig Tree (Ficus carica) is also known as the Negronne Fig. Violette de Bordeaux is considered by experts as one of the best figs because it has an irresistible fragrance and a fantastic sweet, rich flavor.
It produces small to medium size blackish-purple fruit with the darkest strawberry red flesh of any fig. Violette de Bordeaux is considered the finest tasting of all figs and can be enjoyed fresh or dried. One of the biggest bonuses of this very heavy fruit tree is that it can give you two crops of juicy figs a year.
The Violet de Bordeaux is a natural dwarf tree that grows 6-10 feet tall. Its size makes it perfect as an accent tree for a small space. It is by far one of the first choices for those desiring to grow in a container for your patio or deck. Violette de Bordeaux will thrive in extreme heat, humidity, and drought, and the tree is has very good resistance to pests and disease.
You and your family will love the Violette de Bordeaux and this variety’s endless possibilities. Eat fresh picked right off the tree or spread ripe fruit on toast for a fast and healthy breakfast. Some say it is the best jam they’ve ever had.
For a mouthwatering dinner, impress your friends and family by wrapping fish in fig leaves instead of foil for cooking. This will keep the fish juicy and give it a delicious coconut flavor.
