Ronde de Bordeaux Fig Tree

Ronde de Bordeaux ripens one of the earliest main crops of any fig we’ve seen, as early as August in our climate! Figs are similar to the other famous fig from Bordeaux, Violette de Bordeaux a.k.a. Negronne, but are slightly smaller and not quite as dark in skin or flesh but with a delicious berry flavor. Sets a small breba crop before the large and early main crop. This one is sure to become one of the most popular and reliable figs for cool climate growers.

One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh Figs you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their tenderest, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!

Fig Mosaic Virus is a benign virus that exists in all cultivated fig trees. Yellow spotting of the leaves is a cosmetic symptom that shows more in container culture, but is quickly outgrown once trees are planted in the ground. The presence of FMV in all cultivated figs has become widely accepted, as even the national germplasm repository for figs maintained by the USDA has Fig Mosaic Virus. If the presence of FMV is a concern, then purchasing fig trees may not be the best option for you.
