fig 8/10

BJ1's Edible Fruits
Update: 878 days 0hrs

Comments: -

Rescued (a friend didn't want the plant anymore) as a dormant pot-bound plant that had never fruited. I pruned it within an inch of its life and it seems much happier now. I'm hoping I'll get fruit next year.

leaves emerge in August / September. There only appears to be a single fruit. But oh, the taste of that little fruit ... divine! As a kid I used to eat wild figs by the river, and I've eaten shop figs, but this is so much yummier.

Unfortunately I often forget to water the pot in the summer ... so perhaps that is a factor. I really need to figure a better location for this plant. The fig only gets washing machine run off, but it still really needs to be planted rather than in a pot - I'm hoping to plant it in a soak-well when I build a vegetable patch (so worms can move in and out but roots are trapped). It will be used to shade summer sun near the laundry door. I am yet to figure the ideal spot - additional water has resulted in a few more fruit but it doesn't seem to be doing much. I have added worms from the worm farm.

I'm going to release this guy onto the farm (a friend wants a small fig on their rural property). I cannot put him in the ground and he's not a "pretty" feature in the pot so I'd rather he had a bit more attention and I could plant somethign I use more. Very tasty, but hidden out the back so I'd rather see it go somewhere appreciated.

the fruit will most likely identify it. Most likely it was a cutting, rather than seed growing, so it should be good. If not, you can graft figs or start new from cuttings. I'm growing on a couple varieties, but they're still tiny

Got eaten by the staffy when planted. 

Fertilised with manure, woodchip, Blood n bone 10% potash.

Seems to have fruit all year round? Anyway - the fruit is really lovely - highly recommend.  Water heaps when fruiting to get that delicious jelly like centre.... an often under rated fruit.

Fig cuttings taken from a Karagullen Orchard in winter 2009. The orchardist labelled them: white, late, 2 fruit in season. Potted up to larger pots Dec31 2009. Lost a few white and late figs, but the 2-season much more reliable in this batch. I've now given most away and kept 1 of each in a 50L tub. Plan is to braid the trunks into one multi-variety fig tree

Liz's Edible Fruits

Another legacy from past owners - it's a white fig of some sort, and very nice! (It would be taller, but it's near power lines and I have to give it a fairly vicious pruning every few years... which also helps to keep the fruit in reach.)

Doesn't taste as nice as the white adriatic I have as well- but it is a young tree so it may improve
