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 high and ready for this season's fruit. Can't wait!!! The taste is... to die for, soft and delicious. If you have only tasted the dried ones be ready for an explosion in your mouth!
They all taste fantastic, not too fussed about the white adriatic though, maybe we are spoilt by the other 4 trees.
I never thought after 1 year they would fruit to the capacity they did, maybe it's the constant talking and nurturing they receive.
Fruiting Months January and December
Height 3 metres
Growing: In the Ground
Fruit Harvest: 2 kilograms per Year
First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot
Sun/Shade: Full Shade
Water Given in: Spring
When I Fertilise: Winter and Spring
never sprayed, or touched with any pesticides, just love.
I would now like to espillair them, I know I have left it a little too late but can I trim them back to ground level or just trim the larger branches???
