Bordeaux, Beer's Black, Negronne, Petite Figue Violette

Description

One of the finest tasting figs, produces an abundance of small to medium sized purple-black fruit with an excellent, sweet, rich flavor. Dries well.

This is just a great all-round fig: nice flavor, cold hardy, heavy producer, easy to root and grow, disease resistant.
A very deep red strawberry pulp. Hardy 6-10’ self-fruiting plants produce a harvest of fruit that can be enjoyed fresh or dried. Plants will thrive in extremes of heat, humidity, and drought; very good resistance to pests and disease.
