BLACK MALTA  is a deep purple outside with a red inside fig nice size with a berry complex flavor. VERY COLD HARDY down to -3 F here in Raleigh.

Very very cold hardy with NO die back our last very cold winter here in North Carolina. 

 

Tolerates PART SHADE & the heat and humidity here in zone 7 in the south. It has thick skin and a tight eye, helping with resist rain and humidity. Very well adapted to hot, humid conditions like the south. Be careful to not over water in pots.
