Question & Answer

Is this fig suitable to grow in a pot? From: FREDERICKTON NSW

Yes figs are perfectly suited to growing in pots, the container will keep the plant nice and compact, plant into a good quality potting mix. You will need to fertilize it regularly during the growing season with a balanced NPK fertilizer and repot every couple of years into fresh potting mix, do this in the winter when the tree is dormant and give the roots a prune when you repot.

How big is the tree, when will it fruit and what is the cost? From: ST KILDA VIC

It is approximately 60cm tall when we sell them as can be seen here: http://plant.daleysfruit.com.au/trees/m/Fig-Black-Genoa-2393.jpeg and will grow between 2-4 meters. It Fruits between February and March and costs $24.90. To find out how much freight will cost to your address please visit http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Freight-Special.php and enter your postcode.

Fig Black Genoa

Grows well in pots. They will fruit from a young age however the fruit often won't ripen when young. It may be best to take the fruit off so it puts its energy into growing more foliage at first. | Correy - Woolloongabba, QLD 02-Apr-2007

Fig Black Genoa

The taste of this fruit is superlative. Large luscious and sweet in Feb-May. The tree grows very slowly in cold Armidale, partly because of its urge to fruit. Some fruit have frass like material in them - unsure of the cause. | Steve Walkden-brown - Armidale, NSW 10-Jun-2007

Fig Black Genoa (Cutting) 10/10

Kathy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 2090 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I love figs. I would say that they are probably my favourite. They fruit well, are a lovely shade tree, are low maintenance and you make SO MANY FRIENDS when people find out you have a fig tree! ;O)


2009: All of my figs have grown from cuttings from my old tree which was one of a very few trees I had to leave behind at my old house. A friend taught me the trick - you crush the bottom 30% of the cutting with a rock and you get a MUCH better striking rate.


2010: The Genoas are crazy and even though it is winter and the other types are losing their leaves the Genoas are putting on new growth.


Autumn 2011: They never did lose their leaves last year and I am sure that some of the leaves they have now are the same ones! AND they do not look like they are intending to lose them this year either.


Summer 2011: With the cold and rain the figs aren't too happy. They also were copping mealy bug and stupid fig leaf curl bug. RAR! Not happy. Was forced to resort to Confidor. I hate to do it but they were is too much pain.

Birds (I have only ever once had a currawong attack my fruit but it was a vandal) = netting

Planted into a grow bag and to be espaliered against a west facing wall. It was very small when I bought it and it has now trippled in size and had 2 fruit last year. I noticed yesterday that there is fruit buds setting.  I prune to shape.  Spring 2011- growing very well. I repotted in winter into a trough. Its doubled in height but no fruit yet.

Fig Black Genoa (Grafted) 8/10

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2932 days 16hrs

Comments: -

This tree was the last of our deciduous trees to be planted and the first to produce a crop, taking only one year to come up with some very delicious, sweet and beautiful fruit.  A dark brown skin with pink pulp which is very attractive on a platter with some cheese and raisins.  Yum!!

Curiously, the fruit ripen only one or two at a time, so we can't have  a good feed of figs for ourselves and any visitors at the same time.  [Sorry, visitors!].

I'd like a second fig, but we don't yet have the room for one.  The site of the intended third orchard bed requires a lot of re-development (and money, sigh...) before we can get that started.  Either another Black Genoa or a Brown Turkey will suit us well.

Grows very well in pot. Only planted in 2008 in a 50x50cm pot (keeps them dwarfed- and there's no more room in the ground).

I love this fig as I planted 5, 2 x Black Genoa, 2 x Brown Turkey and 1x white Adriatic which I purchased from you in 2008 to surprise my Husband who was recovering from his first stroke.

They have all fruited and grown from small plants to over 3m high and ready for this season's fruit. Can't wait!!! The taste is... to die for, soft and delicious. If you have only tasted the dried ones be ready for an explosion in your mouth!

They all taste fantastic, not too fussed about the white adriatic though, maybe we are spoilt by the other 4 trees.

I never thought after 1 year they would fruit to the capacity they did, maybe it's the constant talking and nurturing they receive.

Yum! What a plant. Needs lots of water in the warmer months and the application of pyrethrum and garlic prevents caterpillars from eating the leaves off. Fruit is very good; sweet and juicy. Size up around 100 grams which is pretty large.

Mine (and my father's) suffered last season and didn't produce much fruit and what was there was dry. Just a bad season I guess. Season before that the trees were loaded. Fresh fig are so good! They will fruit all year round but spring summer fruit are best.

My tree has been pruned to give a central trunk and allow above groung branches. It was formed as a central trunk with 4 surrounding grounded branched before. This made it difficult to support and it broke often.

Only planted in October 2009 and seems a bit slow to take off though I see it is getting some new growth now.  Had 3 figs on it but I removed them as they were bigger than the tree!!

Took a little while to take off but is now showing good growth signs.  Getting a little wind so will re-stake it with a stronger stake.

Really taken off so am expecting good things this season.

Comments: -

Shop bought figs are picked too early, and cannot be compared with a fully tree-ripened fruit!

My BG seems to be the slowest mover of my 4 varieties- is only just starting to break buds, while some of my others are growing branches now.

Doing well in a large pot, haven't had it long. Started fruiting in spring but they shriveled and dropped off, I think it may have got too much rain. I need to move the pot to a spot with more summer sun and less rain.

Neighbour has pruned the Jacaranda so this will now get full sun, I've chopped it down to about 30cm tall this winter because I want the branches much lower than they were.

Update: 702 days 22hrs

Comments: - I am attempting espalier along my side fence as a space saving technique  due to limited room in my yard for full sized trees. Some new growth over the last week or so. Seems to be enjoying its new home despite not having full sun. Watering daily to get established after which hopefully minimal to no watering required.

LissyK1's Edible Fruits
Update: 685 days 7hrs

Comments: - This poor fig had a little accident. It was knocked off the deck that it was sitting on, and the top half of the plant was broken off. Despite that, the remaining little fig tree is doing amazingly. Plenty of new growth coming so quickly that I swear there are new leaves and branches every time I look at it.

Love figs and ridicously expensive to buy from the markets, so i now have my very own!. Have got a Black Genoa and white, plus a Brown Turkey fig. Both still small around 2 feet in height but my Black genoa has set fruit and growing nicely!!.

Very easy to grow and maintain, very hardy and suited for the Adelaide dry and hot climate.

Figbarron's Edible Fruits
Update: 342 days 12hrs

Comments: - Just like my Brown turkey fig, this was also purchased from bunnings. It was badly affected by rust in late autumn due to wet and humid weather. It has come back with great vigour and was the first to break dormancy out of all my figs. Potting mix is the same as the brown turkey. I can't wait for it to start bearing.
