Violette de Bordeaux Fig (Negronne)
Ficus carica 'Violette de Bordeaux'
Also known as Bordeaux and may be Negronne. The very productive tree/bush can produce two crops of purple/black figs with rich, raspberry-colored flesh. Very good in quality with a concentrated texture and deeply sweet flavor. For short-season and cool summer growers, this is the variety to grow for a Mission-style fig experience.
Will produce 2 crops in warm regions. Produces one crop on last years' wood and another on new growth. Very well-suited to growing in pots. Disease and pest resistant. Very similar to Petite Negri but slightly later to ripen.
