FIG CULTURAL NOTES
Ficus carica varieties
Fast growing, self-fertile, deciduous trees to approx. 3-5 m tall bearing masses of tasty fruit throughout the warmer months.
Figs grow best in light well drained neutral soil in full sun. While they prefer a warm, dry climate they appreciate plenty of water while the fruit is developing.
Plant in well worked soil (incorporate fertiliser and/or compost). Water in well and keep moist until established.
Apply fertiliser as recommended, annually in Winter. Fig trees usually require little pruning as they naturally form a good shape. However, old trees may require a regenerative prune as the fruit is borne on new wood.
