Design Ideas: Treat this Fig as a small shade tree or accent if you don't have it in a fruit garden. Its green fruit is not as decorative as other Fig but just as delicious. Also fits into tropical gardens as a reliable source of large exotic leaves.

Prefers enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Requires less water in fall and winter, more in growing season. Shelter in colder zones; may die back and re-sprout from roots in spring. Apply fertilizer in spring. Prune lightly in late winter.

History

The earliest evidence of fig fruit cultivation dates back to 5000 BC.
