Sandpaper Fig

Category

This small fig occurs along watercourses along the east coast of Australia. An attractive small tree with sandpapery leaves and edible fruit. Grows densely in full sun, less so in shade. Very good for stream bank stablilisation.

The small figs are a tasty bush food and the leaves were used by Indigenour Australians to finish off their wooden tool.

Fig - Sandpaper Birds Eye

$21.90 ($14.75-$21.90 choose a size)

An outstanding selection of the native Sandpaper fig. Small, red fleshed fig with good flavour. The fruits ripen from red to dark-red almost black and are sweet and floral tasting. Heavy cropping and no splitting in wet weather. Ideal native fig for a wide range of climates. The leaves are rough and sandpapery and were used by Indigenous Australians to finish wooden tools.

I have Daley's Birds Eye.Fruit initially dropped off at green full size. But when after a small wild sandpaper fig in my yard started fruiting the Birds eye started to crop heavily and successfully. Maybe it needed pollination?

I have Daleys “birds eye” cultivar of F. coronata growing flat out in my greenhouse in Canberra. It is meant to produce large red figs. Each year it sets myriads of fruits, grows them to half-acorn size, then (around now in late February) starts dropping

I'd like to know if it's safe to transplant this fig. I've had for a few years and fruited but now needs to be moved to another garden; anything I should know about this?

Very hardy, beautiful little tree with delicious fruit. Grows nicely in sun or partial shade but not surprisingly, fruit from trees in full sun are sweeter. Fast grower in pots too.
