Ficus, 'Violette De Bordeaux' fig

$ 40
Ficus carica

This French fig produces luscious black fruit with rich strawberry red flesh. A natural dwarf, this tree is very well suited for growing in containers. It also has longer and finer leaves than most fig trees, making it a beautiful ornamental. It ripens late (early to mid-October in CT depending on the season), but reliably. Figs are elongated and small to medium in size. Produces a good early crop, called the "breba crop".

Size at maturity: Varies according to training technique, pruning and winter die-back.

Cultivation: Plant in rich, well-drained soil in an area that receives six hours of sun.

Zone hardiness: 7-10. In zones 6 and below winter protection is necessary.

Plant size: Trees are 18-24", grown in a 4" x 9" tree pot. This size tree will likely fruit in 1-2 years if given proper care.

Shipping Restrictions: Shipment prohibited to CA.
