After hearing good things about this fig, i decided to get it. Planted in the same fig mix of coir, compost and potting mix and added dynamic lifter and garden lime. 3 weeks into planting it started to branch and has since produced figs which are currently growing. I will update on growth habit and fruit taste (provided it won't fall off considering its its first year).

Update: Unfortunately the figs fell off due to its young age. but on a positive note, the fig tree has more than foubled in height and has branched out so next season it will be stong enough to hold figs.
