Fig White Adriatic (Cutting) 9/10

Joek's Edible Fruits
Update: 3316 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Fruits progressively for 6-8 weeks with reliable large crop; plump green skin with bright red pulp. Grows profusely during spring/summer and fruits on new growth. Cut back easily from 3.5m to 2m every winter then I chop up and strike a couple of hundred cuttings to produce  new trees to sell or give away. Needs only 1 or 2 summer waterings and only one winter watering if a dry winter. No fertiliser, pesticides or other care required. I keep it cut small but can be left to grow large and will fruit just as well, but needs more water.

Fruit is best eaten fresh and given to neighbours - never enough left over to do any preserves. I expect it to fruit for at least the next 50 years.

I have 8 other varieties of fig, but this is one of my favourites.
