Product description

Ficus carica or fig tree can be kept well in our climate. Cover in the winter and you enjoy it for a long time.
The ordinary traditional Italian fig must be in a sheltered place. Preferably in a sunny place.
The fruits are delicious to eat, they are ripe in September / October.
The leaf of the fig is also beautiful to see and in winter there remain thick, irregular branches that are so typical of the fig.
Figs are best kept in the open ground, but a tub can also be fine.
Pruning of the fig occurs in the early spring, then dead points are pruned to one knot.
In summer, the tops of young shoots are pruned to 6 leaves if you find this necessary.
Provide an open shrub that the light can easily reach the frame branches everywhere.
Available green fruits for the fall of the winter can be picked.
These do not ripen off in the winter anyway.
Many tasty dishes can be made from figs. Fresh they are delicious but also in the oven, or as chutney, in the cake as jam etc.
Winter hardiness zone 8a (-10ºC).
