Fig (Ficus carica) – Violette de Bordeaux
Location: 2nd Hugelkultur row bed
Purchased from Raintree Nursery
Planted: Spring 2011
USDA Zones: 7-11
Description from nursery: Very productive tree produces two crops of purplish black figs with strawberry colored flesh. Very good in quality with a rich flavor. Grows well in the Pacific Northwest in a sunny location.
Received plant in April from Raintree in a one gallon pot. I allowed the plant to break dormancy and leaf out and waited to plant in the ground until after the last frost.
