Considering that Petite Negra is probably the smallest shrub of any fig at maturity, it produces a surprising amount of fruit. 100-120cm (3-4') is generally the biggest it will get. Medium sized, violet-black fruit with deep, ruby-red flesh is a flavourful fresh-eating favourite. It will often produce both an early and a late crop, so moving it indoors to finish ripening the late harvest is likely the best way to maximize Petite Negra's potential.
