Violette de Sollies or (VdS) is a top tier French fig variety that produce large purple figs with a sweet rich berry flavor.  

Named for its deep violet, almost black fruit, Ficus carica Violette de Sollies is a vigorous, spreading, deciduous tree with smooth, grey bark and beautiful, light green, five-lobed leaves. The fruit is large, with deep red flesh and an excellent, scented, very sweet flavour, and will need protection from birds if the tree is grown outside. Fig Violette de Sollies will grow very large unless its roots are confined, but it does well in a large container in a greenhouse or polytunnel. In warmer areas it can be fan-trained against a warm wall. In warmer climates figs produce two crops a year, but only one here; any small figs left on the tree should be removed in autumn, as they will not ripen. Keep well watered while the fruit is ripening. Be aware that fig sap can react with sunshine to irritate the skin.   Site: Warm, sheltered, sunny site Soil: Any well drained soil, not too fertile Position: Full sun Pick: From late August, earlier under cover Keep: Does not keep Hardiness: Fairly hardy, to -8ºPollination: Self-fertile Uses: Eating, drying and preserving
