Grafted to Sandpaper Fig. Fruits almost continually in Cairns with progressive leaf fall & fruit set; short dormant period in june/july/august. Fruits are large and tasty with minimal fruit splitting in extreme wet weather
FRANKSTON SOUTH, VIC, Australia
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 t...

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 ...

Very vigorous plant. Absolutely no problems with it. Easy to care for.
MAREEBA, QLD, Australia
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 ...
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
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...
Boolwarra Heights, NSW, Australia
Beautiful large fruits when fresh and when dry is sweet and sticky. Large crop on a very small tree.
Took a cutting from a family tree last autumn and is now shooting out of winter slumber. Plan to leave in a pot.
I love the look of it

Bundaberg, Qld, Australia
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 f...
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 20...

UMINA BEACH, NSW, AUSTRALIA
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 hig...
Mt Pleasant, Qld, Australia
Such a hardy fig, that makes a beautiful fresh fruit. I don't waste these ones on grilling/baking :) They are best eaten plucked fresh from the tree! They are the first EVER fruits I have grown, I am very proud of them!
MARYLAND, NSW, Australia
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 ...

Woongarra, QLD, Australia
Had a bumper crop 2009. Found by putting green mossie netting over plant the birds and bugs left fruit alone. Fruit is tasty if cooked on BBQ with a drizzle of honey.
SAFETY BAY, WA, Australia
Never had much fruit from this-much more from an un-named variety I was given
Keperra, QLD, Australia
I like this fig, so planted one. It took a while to adapt to the new (dry rock/clay) conditions, shedding all of its leaves, but is now flushing with new growth from lower limbs.
Mooloolaba, QLD, Australia
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....
EATONS HILL, QLD, Australia
I had this fig for 2 years in a pot. Went into the ground 2 weeks ago and there are little fruit starting to form on the tree. (Oct 2014)
Eaton, WA, Australia
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).Doesn't taste as nice as the white adriatic I have as well- but it is a young tree so it may improve
Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
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 w...
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.
