The Negronne Fig, also known as the Violette de Bordeaux, is a prized variety of the common fig (Ficus carica). This deciduous fruit tree is renowned for its sweet and flavorful dark purple-black fruit. The Negronne Fig is highly valued not only for its delicious fruit but also for its attractive, compact growth habit and dark green, deeply lobed leaves.
It produces medium-sized, pear-shaped fruit with a deep purple-black skin and sweet, reddish-pink flesh. The rich flavor profile of the fruit makes it ideal for fresh consumption, drying, or culinary use in various dishes.
Negronne Figs typically ripen in late spring or early summer, providing an early harvest. The bearing age of the tree is around 2 to 3 years after planting, ensuring relatively quick access to the delicious fruits. It is self-pollinating, meaning you don't need multiple trees for cross-pollination. However, providing a favorable environment for pollinators can enhance fruit production.
It reaches a height of 8 to 15 feet, making it a perfect choice for smaller gardens or container cultivation. Its spreading branches form a rounded crown, creating a visually appealing ornamental tree.
The Negronne Fig thrives in USDA hardiness zones 7 to 10, making it suitable for a wide range of climates with moderate winter temperatures.
