Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey'

Our fig tree is a striking shrub with its fabulous luxuriant foliage coupled with the ability to bear edible fruits.

The spring crop is poor, but the summer figs are abundant and ripen over time. They are often grown against a warm sunny wall to make it more fruitful and allow the fruits to mature.

They can be grown as a specimen tree. Our 2L trees are approximately 40cm in height and have no fruit on them.

Please be aware during spring the foliage will only be starting to appear on the plant. As the weather warms up and improves they will burst into life.

Medium maintenance. Prune to shape especially if you wish to train your fig against the wall. It is necessary to restrict root growth if you require fruit rather than luxuriant growth which makes them a good candidate for a container.

Further information
