‘Petite Negra’ is an amazing fruiting fig that produces medium sized plump black juicy figs at a young age. This impressive fig is perfect for the indoor or patio gardener since it starts fruiting when plants are less than 12” tall. ‘Petite Negra’ is an ornamental beauty as well since the mitten-shaped green leaves make a lovely backdrop for the ripening deep purple fruit. Grow in full sun on a windowsill or outside in warm temperatures. If growing conditions are kept warm, it will hold its foliage year-round. Under cool temperatures, the plant will drop its leaves and go dormant until temperatures warm up.

Fruits after just a few months Review by Jon
How do you rate this product?
This is an amazing little Fig plant! I have only had it thru one season (Spring thru Summer) and it has already produced about 4 figs. The fruit is not large, but still it is amazing that such a small plant already produces fruit. I had purchased another bare root fig plant from a different online nursery and the plant died after a couple of months. I tried this 2 times and it still failed no matter how much I tried to keep it alive. This one from Logee's is still growing strong and producing fruit after just a few months. If you want to try growing figs, start here. (Posted on 9/9/2015)
