This highly ornamental tree produces medium sized fruit with green skin and red sweet flesh. Harvest fruit in summer and again in autumn. Deciduous.
Require 8 hours a day of full sun and long hot summers to produce fruit.
Like regular water when first planted, but will tolerate drought once the tree is established. Water deeply at least once a week the first year
Well drained fertile soil, slightly alkaline
Young plants only need 30g doses of general fertiliser once a month as soon they produces leaves. Established trees require less feeding, preferably 500g for each metre of height once at the end of winter, once halfway through spring and then a final fertilizing at the height of summer.
Avoid using a high nitrogen, fast release fertiliser. This will promote strong leaf growth at the expense of fruit production. Opt for a bloom boosting fertiliser with long nutrient release. They also like old composed manure added twice yearly.
Sensitive to wind, protection cover is needed when plant is small.
Some tolerance of cool climates, frost, and short periods of dry. Fig trees need winter protection in areas where the temperatures will drop below zero.
2-3 years. Grafted plant will be quicker.
