Prized for Both Fruit and Foliage in California

Why Desert King Fig Trees?

Fresh, high-quality fruit is just a click away with the Desert King Fig Tree. Even better, this coveted cultivar is productive and reliable, producing bushels of yellow-green figs with sweet, richly-flavored and strawberry-hued flesh. Plus, because it's grown in California, it's a proven performer for your Golden State landscape.

And the Desert King is easy to grow. Because the Desert’s fruit ripens during middle to late summer, it’s a choice variety for gardeners in coastal, high elevation, and other cool regions. And it withstands fruit-damaging late spring frosts like a champ. So, it’s adaptable to your needs, especially since it thrives just about anywhere you place it.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

For one, this Desert King isn't bothered by pests and diseases like many other fruit trees, meaning low-maintenance care for you. Also, it can be kept smaller and more manageable with pruning or left to its gorgeous growth, so it’s super versatile. But best of all, because it’s been meticulously nurtured at the nursery long before it arrives to your door, it’s ready to go and grow in your own landscape. It's California bred specially for California homes.

Imagine an at-home orchard full of healthful, hearty fruit. The Desert King is second to none with it comes to harvesting you own bushels - order yours today!

    Desert king, Celeste

    Both figs look great… i was a little confused as the Desert king arrived in a long cylindrical pot and the plant is one stalk and more expensive than the Celeste that arrived in a 3 gallon and was a much more established plant and was less expensive then the Desert King.Like I said, both look great, healthy, well packed for shipping, the Celeste is starting to leaf out already.
