Description

Honey-sweet, and simply divine eating. The pale chartreuse skin is very slightly tart against the luscious, sweet pale amber flesh. Fruit is exquisite fresh, but also dries beautifully. “Closed eye” when ripe; helps resist splitting and souring. Minimal pruning needed, and grows well in containers. Heat- and drought-tolerant, though some fruit drop may occur if tree is dry for too long a period. For some reason, deer are not terribly interested in this variety. Self-pollinating.

USDA zone 7 – 10. Does suffer from damage if temps go below 10F so please be aware you will need to protect your fig trees in extreme low temps.

Bare Root Size: 18 – 24″
