Got eaten by the staffy when planted. 

Fertilised with manure, woodchip, Blood n bone 10% potash.

Seems to have fruit all year round? Anyway - the fruit is really lovely - highly recommend.  Water heaps when fruiting to get that delicious jelly like centre.... an often under rated fruit.

Bought this one as a tube nearly 4 years ago. Planted in ground & grew very slowly but I think the soil is  too fertile & too much rain the last few seasons. Have since moved to a pot ( June 2011 when dormant ) & doing well with more fruit now. They like it very hot with not too much water except more when fruiting. I had another in a terracotta pot  5 years ago in full sun against  a brick wall that i neglected & it thrived.

VF1's Edible Fruits

My Grand-parents used to grow a variety of figs when I was a girl, and I remember me and one of my cousins stuffing ourselves with them every year. I don't think this was one of the varieties I used to eat, but by all accounts are delicious.

It's nearing the end of winter, and the tree is putting out new growth including some small figs ( I can definitely see at least 4)- hope they grow!

I'll most likely keep this plant in a pot - the roots can be invasive and I'm too lazy to do root pruning each year in addition to regular pruning

This one is easily the fastest grower out of the 4 varieties I have.

The fruit is sweet and tender.  It is an attractive tree with prolific fruiting.  We are yet to prepare a bed for this tree but it may stay potted as the tasty fruit are available in summer and autumn.  A great fig choice, one to be recommended.

Fig - Brown Turkey

Fred1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3372 days 4hrs

Comments: -

Not much fruit for the first couple of years - due to birds getting them.  2009 saw us put up some 'holocaust owls' and we got quite a few figs, if we kept an eye on them. At the latter part of the year the birds were starting to get at them, so we netted it. 


Unfortunately, this fig tree has now died - it rotted out at the base - cause unknown

Struck from a sucker from a friend's tree around 1993. Took quite a few years to establish. I do nothing to it - water only in the hottest part of summer and has never been fertilised. Fruiting well last few years after a heavy prune to keep it under 2m ... and I now actually GET the fruit since I started netting it from the birds! Lovely fruit when dried.
