FIG TREES. 'Rouge De Bordeux'
The Ficus Carica 'Rouge De Bordeux' is a high yeilding variety of fig tree which is self fertile. Figs are medium to large in size, have a beautiful purple-plum coloured skin with delicious, juicy and sweet strawberry red flesh inside.
Perfect as an ornamental too, the tree itself is very attractive with smooth bark and large glossy green palmate leaves usually having 5 distinct lobes. Mid to dark green in colour they are quite aromatic.
Fig trees instantly bring a piece of the Mediterranean to your garden. Grown in a sunny, sheltered position they will produce bountiful crops of delicious sweet fruits even in the UK.
Caring for your Fig Tree is easy, remember they are a fruit tree so they will need feeding. Feed with tomato feed every 2-3 weeks from when the figs first appear, through the growing season until they start to ripen.
Great for growing in containers, as restricting root growth encourages fruiting.
