Violette de Bordeaux is a productive variety. You’ll get two crops of juicy figs a year. The early Breba crop comes in late spring and is borne on dormant buds from last year’s old wood. New wood produces the main crop, which is harvested in fall. Pick your ripe figs when the texture turns soft. You can also hand-pick your crops with a gentle tug upward. Exceptional Violette de Bordeaux performs well across a wide geographic area. It’s blissfully resistant to pests and diseases.
