  • Pollination: Self-pollinated.

Sub-tropical, drought tolerant fruit tree. The sweetest develop when the daytime temperature regularly exceeds 95°F. Figs thrive in most soil types, as long as well-drained and will fruit in a variety of climates. Mature trees are hardy to 15°F. Will re-grow from roots if winter-killed. Trees grow to 25' tall and 40' wide if not pruned. Figs need warm soil for their roots to start growing. Figs do not like to be planted as bare-roots and are difficult to establish, so we sell these No. 1 size trees (2’ to 3’) in pots to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old and should begin to fruit in same year you plant them.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Reviews

Great for container gardening

Bought locally, I've had this variety in a wine barrel on my zone 10a patio for several years. I try to keep it pruned to 6' for easy access. It's a great little producer of dark delicious fruit with closed eye.<br /><br />Problem free except for the birds and squirrels.
