Fig Tree Plants For Sale Online, Chicago Hardy & Violette du Bordeaux (Fruiting)
If you sigh every time you can’t grow a plant because of harsh winter temperatures then Chicago hardy fig trees are the perfect plant for you. These trees can freeze solid without hampering growth or productivity. Those in the know just prune the stem down to where they can see fresh wood in the spring and the plant does just fine.
Negronne, also known as Violette du Bordeaux, flaunts large, lobed leaves and honey-sweet fruit that will tempt every bird in the neighborhood. The outer skins of the fresh figs are deep purple to near-black, with delicious dark red inner flesh. This compact and adaptable plant is fast-growing, low-maintenance, and entirely self-fertile, meaning only one tree is needed to produce its ripe, juicy fruit. As a rather petite cultivar, Fig Plants are ideal for containers on sunny porches and patios. During the winter months, bring Negronne inside and give it a place to thrive by your sunniest window.
Deep mahogany fig fruits are sweet, delicious and abundant. You can expect up to 100 pints of figs from a healthy tree! New trees will fruit in the fall while older growth trees will fruit in the spring. The fig tree will grow 2 to 3 feet per year and maxes out at around 8 feet tall with deciduous leaves that will drop off for the winter months.
