I have a fig black genoa tree in a big pot and was getting fruit on it straight away out of season here in Brisbane I was very proud.

I asked a pro and he said that it was better to take the fruit off and wait until it was spring and it was a bit bigger which I did.

The fig black genoa variety is the most popular fig Daleys sell. It is also very popular with these little see through worms that hide under the leaves. I think moths lay them. Here are some solutions people have been talking about

I had a fig in a pot and it fruited within the first 3 months (about 5 fruit) and then again 6 months later I got an even bigger crop. We had a small accident whilst we were in holidays where I came home and found that all the soil had washed out of the pot - the plant looks fairly dead but I'm waiting to see what happens this spring as we had an apricot tree ( about a year old) that was sitting on a rubbish pile whilst we were building onto our house and when we went to clean up the pile (18 months later) I noticed it had buds and so I replanted it and sure enough it gives me great crops - I think you will do great with a fig in a pot just make sure you get a good pot and top notch potting mix

I would like to grow fig trees on my farm, which is situated at Kingower, approx 60 kms west of Bendigo.
Can you assist me with tips on how to get started, e.g. where do I get the plants from etc.

Patrick,

The first step is to decide which figs to plant and if it were me I would be making sure I get the right variety. Do you know if you like the taste of white figs or brown figs is a good starting question.

Here is a list of fig trees and prices:

Fig Tree Prices

Daleys can of course can easily mail order fruit trees to Bendigo but if it was a common type of fig you might be able to source them locally and save freight costs.

Rod, I have two fig brown turkey in pots, about 50cm diameter and 70cm deep. Bought them bare-rooted in winter and they fruited the same season after planting so very quick. They grow quite well in pots. Only problem I have is birds stealing the figs.

Figs can also be grown fairly easily by seed from the dried imported fruits, maybe we could get a few new varieties up and running here.

Does the black fig need to have full sun or can it cope with some shade? We have 40/45 temps here and I didn't want it to fry.

I have my potted figs under a jacaranda's shade but it is bare in spring before flowering so the figs can put on some growth then. The tree is also on the south side so the sun can still shine on the figs as it moves around.

So pleased to see my Blue Provence and Nicolena in fruit already. They are in pots. The blue plastic is the cover on my neighbour's car. It's that tight around here.

When I was up north I saw a fig tree at a market that the seller said has large round black figs. Wish I could have brought it home but it was too big.

You're over watering the one on the right Mary (or it got too much rain). The way you can tell is if the new leaves have a yellowish, crinkly appearance and are overly serrated around the edges or malformed in places.

It's easy to overwater them, very easy. They are hard for me to grow for this reason; my brain can't accept that they like potbound, non-aerated and non-acidic, dry soil that is low on nitrogen--the total opposite of everything else I grow. The best way to water them is to let the soil pretty much dry out and give them enough to moisten it again.

I have been experimenting, and have found that potting them in mineral soil (the kind you get at landscaping supply stores) works best. They do seem to prefer it over premium potting mixes, and it has the added of bonus of being heavy, so your pots don't blow over. Not fun moving them around though.

Hello Ivepeters, that looks like a great fig! Though the colour looks different to the apricot colour in this photo:

Do you think it is the same variety?

hi mark
thanks for getting back
if you just want to grow for fruit you dont really need much space from what ive read. On the ourfig forum people are planting figs in 20L pots and partially burying them for the fruiting season. When they are dormant they go around with a spade cut the roots off around the pot i think to keep them small? They get around 75 figs a per season with those. Below is a great link if your interested in productivity they have found:

Thats a great root pruning idea tbcha1 as the fig roots are good at getting out of their pots - Ive been sitting in a big saucer of water over summer which worked great and got a fair crop - I have a Goldy - Granny apple that did a great crop after putting a huge root out off its tile it was sitting on - now its grown bigger than wanted but did have an enormous crop of apples ;)

Hi Tbcha,
I'd be interested in buying a cutting of st Dom off you if you have any spare.
Also chasing some Violette de Bordeaux if anyone has some.
Recently moved back to Aus so looking at starting a small potted collection

Hi bt84,
I don't have any atm but I should have some come winter when it goes dormant. Send me a message then. If u have Facebook join figworld and also "e;fig & mulberry preservers Australia"e;e; page and introduce yourself and I'll let u know who I am so it's easier to contact. The fig community is still pretty small but it's growing. Nick who runs figworld is a great guy and also sells different varieties. He is located in Sydney. I haven't personally purchased off him but my friend has and he was great. Packaging was superb. Figalot is another seller. I've purchased from him before he was ok. He sells on ebay as well and has great variety. There's also figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com which is another fig forum which has a few Australians there as well

Hi Fignut, sorry for being so late to reply but I'd still love to get cuttings from your Dad's fig tree. I'm in metropolitan Melbourne. Don't suppose you'd be willing to mail it to me? I'm happy to pay.
