Black Genoa Fig Trees – Grove size ( 90mm pots )
Our new season fig trees are 50-80cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground or a large pot.
Originating in Italy, Black Genoa is the leading commercial variety for fresh fruit production in Australia. The fruit is dark purple at maturity with bright red flesh. It is a pear-shaped fruit that has a very sweet rich flavour. Generally the tree will produce two crops a year. The first (known as the breba crop) is a small crop produced in spring on the older wood. The main crop is produced in late summer on the new seasons growth.
These trees are very productive and will start to bear fruit in their first summer.
Figs are very hardy trees that are proven performers in both warmer and colder climates. They are tolerant to frost, coastal conditions and salinity. Fig trees are most productive and best maintained by pruning back to a height of around 1-2 metres every winter. Trees can be kept in large pots as long as they are pruned annually. The tree has an open and spreading habit. Although the trees are drought tolerant summer irrigation is required to maximise fruit production.
We only send trees early in the week to help ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.
