Large, architectural leaves and sweet, coppery-coloured fruit with pinkish-white flesh that is ready for picking between August and September. This is a highly ornamental, deciduous fig that is suitable for training on wires outdoors or under glass.
It should be grown against a south or west-facing wall to prevent the top-growth from being killed off in strong, cold winds. Restricting the spread of the roots in the ground or growing in a pot helps to encourage a plentiful display of fruit. A prolific, reliable cropper that can be trained as an espalier and becomes drought tolerant once established. Figs are ripe when the stalk bends and the fruit hangs down and produces a droplet of sugar from the base. Figs are surprisingly hardy but winter protection is advisable - thick fleece is ideal.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
