Description

Brown Turkey (Ficus carica) produces purple-brown coloured fruits with sweet, pale pink flesh. The rich flavoured fruit is perfect for eating fresh, drying or or making jam. It will bears two crops in a year, with the main crop in late summer autumn.

These young trees will usually 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.

Our new season fig trees are 50-80cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground or a large pot.

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.
