Customer Comments on Fig Black Genoa
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

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
