Fig Trees

First to fruit with multiple harvest a year!

The intensely nutritious fig is one of a kind. Besides its creamy texture, subtle hints of berry with undertones of vanilla flavor, this age-old fruit is packed with more than a decadent taste. According to the American Diabetes Association, figs are high in fiber and help to promote functional control of diabetes, and its leaves can reduce insulin requirements, too. This fruit tree will not only surprise you with its hardiness and many luxurious culinary capabilities, it can also add a touch of character to any area where you let her stand gracefully.

Where to Plant

The fig tree originated from Northern Asia, where the climate is tropical with heaps of sun exposure. Whether you’re planting your tree indoors or outdoors, you should place it in an area that receives 6 hours of sunlight or more per day. If you’re planting it strictly outdoors, it’s best to plant your fig beside a structure, like a brick wall or other plants, because too much sun will put stress on your tree, causing the leaves to burn or drop.

Pollination

Though our figs are self-fertile, meaning it can bare plenty of fruit without a pollinator, figs go through a unique process when it comes to pollination. Because figs are not fruit, but inverted flowers, they cannot depend on the wind or bees to spread their pollen. This intensely nutritious flower is filled with an assortment of unopened blooms that line the inner walls of its velvety skin. The only way that a fig can be pollinated is by microscopic wasps called fig wasps.

Planting your Fig Tree

When planting your fig tree in a container, make sure to transfer the plant from the pot it was shipped in into a new one. The container should be twice the size of the root ball, to leave room for establishment, and has to have drainage holes on the bottom. If the new pot doesn’t have drainage holes, the root system will sit in standing water and cause root rot. The easiest way to tell if your tree is thirsty is by sticking your finger into the soil. If the soil is dry, then it’s time for a watering. If it’s moist, then it’s good to go.

To help the roots get established in the ground, dig your hole two to three times the size of the root ball. Your outdoor fig won’t require as many waterings as those planted in containers. Water your tree at least once or twice a week. This will promote growth and help the roots get established. After the first year, it will not require as many waterings.

Harvest

Because our plants are grafted, you can skip the boring part and get straight to the results. Instead of 2 years, you may get fruit within the first year! You’ll know your figs are ready to be harvested once they droop, soften, and change color. Unlike most fruit, figs do not ripen off the tree. It’s important to examine your figs first before picking, because if you pick them too early they will taste extremely bitter. Figs are very perishable, so it’s best to eat them soon after harvest. For the best results, you can place your figs in the refrigerator for up to two to three days to get the same decadent quality it had straight off the tree.
