Characteristics of the Tiger Panache Fig Tree:

  2. Flavor Profile: Beyond its captivating appearance, the Tiger Panache Fig offers a delightful combination of sweet and fruity flavors. When fully ripe, these figs exhibit a honey-like sweetness with subtle hints of berry undertones, making them a delectable treat for fresh consumption or culinary creations.

  3. Fruit Quantity: This fig tree is a prolific bearer, providing gardeners with a generous yield of fruit each season. Its consistent fruit production ensures a bountiful harvest for those who appreciate its unique flavor.

  4. Dwarf Growth Habit: The Tiger Panache Fig is typically grown on dwarf rootstock, making it a compact and manageable tree for gardens of all sizes. Its smaller stature allows gardeners to cultivate it in containers or small spaces.

Growing Requirements:

Successful cultivation of the Tiger Panache Fig Tree involves providing the following growing requirements:

  1. Sunlight: Ensure that the fig tree receives ample sunlight, ideally in a location with full sun exposure. Fig trees thrive when they receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily.

  2. Well-Drained Soil: Plant the tree in well-drained soil with good fertility. While figs are adaptable to various soil types, they perform best in loamy soil that retains some moisture without becoming waterlogged.

  3. Pruning: Regular pruning is essential for shaping the tree, managing its size, and promoting airflow within the canopy. Pruning also encourages fruit production and maintains the tree's health.

  4. Watering: Provide consistent and deep watering, especially during dry spells or when the tree is actively growing and fruiting. However, avoid overwatering, as fig trees are susceptible to root rot in waterlogged soil.

  5. Winter Protection: In regions with cold winters, consider providing winter protection, such as mulching or wrapping the tree, to shield it from frost and freezing temperatures.

  1. Exquisite Appearance: The distinctive striped pattern of the Tiger Panache Fig makes it a captivating and ornamental addition to any garden or landscape. Its unique appearance adds aesthetic charm and visual interest.

  3. Abundant Harvest: The Tiger Panache Fig Tree is a prolific bearer, ensuring that gardeners can enjoy a steady supply of these delectable figs throughout the growing season.

  4. Dwarf Growth: Its dwarf growth habit makes it suitable for small gardens, patios, or container gardening. Its compact size allows gardeners to cultivate it in limited spaces.

Sub-tropical, drought tolerant fruit tree. Fig trees are possibly the very first domesticated fruit. There is evidence of fig cultivation as early as 4,000 B.C. The sweetest figs develop when the daytime temperature regularly exceeds 95°F. Figs thrive in most soil types, as long as it's well-drained, and they will fruit in a variety of climates. Fig trees need hardly any cold period to produce fruit. Mature fig trees are hardy to 15°F. Will re-grow from roots if winter-killed.

Mature standard trees grow to 25' tall and 40' wide if not pruned, semi-dwarf trees can get 12-15' tall. 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 (about 1/4"-3/8" caliper) in pots (4" x 4" x 9") to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old and should begin to fruit in same year you plant them.

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
