FIG

Figs mixedBotanical Name: Ficus carica
Description

Fresh figs are as different from the dried form as fresh cherries are to the glazed cherry. Cut open, they look very decorative and exotic. Eaten fresh the seeds are indistinct in texture and flavour from the flesh. Eaten dried, the skin thickens and the seeds become grainy and almost crunchy. There are hundreds of varieties and variations between figs but all are sweet and luscious.

Fig

Easier to manage and protect in very large pots. Chalky, alkaline, sandy soil is best. Go very light on the fertiliser, water and mulch if you want to eat the fruit, rather than a profusion of leaves. Protect from birds and control ants. Full sun. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 04-Feb-2006

Any advice on suitable varieties for northern NSW? We are on a (very wet) north facing slope, chocolate soils. | Rachel - Kunghur, NSW 22-Nov-2008

Does anyone have any tips on the sandpaper fig? but it's not the bird eye variety. it's on a different page of this website. just 'sandpaper fig'. cheers. | Tara Emmerson - Vermont South, VIC 13-Jan-2009

Fig

To my knowledge, sandpaper figs are a arid centre variety, more like a trailing vine, hugging the ground and rocks. The leaves are very tough, to reduce water loss and have a very rough exterior, hence the name. Very small sweet gritty fruit. | David White - Sydney/west Ryde, NSW 30-Oct-2009

Fig

Put plastic bags on the fruit to protect from birds while they fully ripen on the tree. You'll get twice the flavour. | P W - , 18-Dec-2009

I have found Sandpaper figs growing in many gullies adjacent to streams in South East QLD. I have grown a small one. They are a hardy tree. Only a few produced tasty fruit (riddled with fruit fly). | Scott G - Talegalla Weir, QLD 18-Dec-2009

Sandpaper fig - Birds Eye

I have a seasonal creek at the back of my rented property. It is lined with sandpaper figs which grow to be a large tree with patches on the trunk like some other figs. The fruit is plentyful and abundant in huge numbers. | Alison Kearin - Clear Mountian, QLD 03-Jan-2010
