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. Once established, figs are drought tolerant and generally free of pests and diseases.

    It's Time to Grow A Fig Tree

    Posted by Wanda on May 12th 2020

    The fig tree is a sizable tree which I'm hoping will yield abundant fruit. I plan to keep this one potted as the ground soil in the North East needs a lot of work. Given our current pandemic, it's time to get growing!
