Product Description

The brown turkey fig supposedly was named because turkeys like to eat them. Regardless, it is a favorite fig of the South, but is also one of the winter hardy figs. The fruit has a small eye and does not tend to swell and burst if the weather is wet when the figs are ripening. These trees develop fruit parthenocarpically (without pollination) so more than one plant is not needed. However, if you are not familiar with growing figs it may be a good idea to purchase more than one plant to provide a comparison. As a patio plant, set outside during the summer and move indoors in the winter. Fig trees usually begin bearing fruit within two years. Mulch heavily with organic materials to conserve moisture, improve soil structure and reduce root knot nematode levels.

    Well packaged and healthy. It was slightly root-bound, but once I untangled the roots, I was impressed but how extensive the roots were and the plant itself was larger than expected. I trimmed up the top a bit to focus on root growth.
