The Petite Negra Fig is a dwarf tree great for containers, patios, balconies or small gardens. The fruit of Petite Negra, which translates to the little black fig, is anything but little as it produces medium to large, full-sized fruit of incomparable flavor. Fruit is black to dark purple with amber flesh and strawberry to purple pulp with excellent flavor. The Petite Negra has large, attractive lobed leaves.
All the bounty of a full-sized tree, yet compact enough to be grown on an urban balcony!
The Petite side is that this is a dwarf tree that is a good choice for containers and it is known to produce fruit even at a very young age. The eye is small to closed so this should minimize spoiling of the fruit. Small productive and hardy!
