Description

All my figs are container grown in Wisconsin.  Cuttings were taken in late November after trees had gone dormant and have been stored in a fridge at 37-40 degrees.  You are bidding on the 2 dormant unrooted cuttings of Negronne.  

planetfig.com describes Negronne:

"This cultivar has been present in South of France for a very long time and was grown by J.B. de la Quinitinie in the Versailles Castle during Louis XIV. This famous gardener described Negronne in 1692. Its presence in the Paris area, in England and even in North America demonstrates its resistance to cold and its ability to ripen fruits in cool climates with short autumns."

Also called Violette de Bordeaux or Bordeaux

*********************************

I’ve been growing and trialing figs in southwestern Wisconsin for 30 years. My focus was on container figs which will ripen in Wisconsin without a greenhouse, but now that I have an unheated hoophouse & I’ve been putting many varieties in the ground.

I am sacredgroveorganics on eBay and run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has several thousand members.  I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.
