Design Ideas: This resilient Fig was widely used in the historic California missions. Its larger size offers dense shade and its black fruit is sweet and ornamental. Plant as a single specimen or among other fruit trees in an orchard. Bears best in hot inland areas. In harsh winter climates, figs can be enjoyed in large tubs indefinitely, if re-potted or root-pruned occasionally. Move the containers into a cellar or unheated garage after the leaves have dropped in fall, and back out when the harsh winter weather has passed. A beautiful specimen or seasonal screening plant for patios, decks and urban rooftop gardens.

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.
