Dwarf

Zones: 7-10

Chill hours: 100

Harvest: August 10 - November 5

Looks: Large, purplish-brown skin over strawberry red flesh.

Personality: Sweet and juicy.

Facts of note: This naturally dwarf can be maintained at 6' - 8' and is well suited to containers. A hardy fig that may be identical to California Brown Turkey.

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.

Customer 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.

Problem free except for the birds and squirrels.
