Ficus carica 'Rouge de Bordeaux'

A delicious red fleshed fig with medium to large sized fruit. The skin is purple with a violet bloom but it's the superb, rich flavour that puts this variety in a class of its own. Although cold-resistant, it does best in a greenhouse in cooler locations. It can be grown outside in the south given a warm, sheltered site.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: Aug - Sept.


Available for delivery: all year.


 

More Information

Although, fig trees are associated with Mediterranean countries, with the correct choice of variety and given a sunny, sheltered site, they can be grown outside throughout the U.K. with great success. Figs picked fresh from the garden are juicy, sweet and fragrant. They are very useful for covering large areas such as a south or south-west facing wall or fence and trained as a fan they will eventually reach 2m (6ft 6in) high and 3-3.6m (10-12ft) wide. They also make ideal container plants on a sun-drenched patio, where they will make a very attractive garden feature. Fig trees require root restriction and for ease they can be planted in a Root Control Bag.

Browse the rest of our fruit tree collection and enjoy a variety of fresh fruit straight from your garden all year. 

 

Our fig trees are supplied in containers and are available for despatch throughout the year.
