Figs (Ficus carica) The beloved fig needs no introduction to Bible readers or anyone who has lived in the Mediterranean region. It's home territory is hot and dry so obviously it needs a bit of help to survive in Canada. However, many people are convinced it is worth the effort to be able to pluck fresh, sun-ripened fruit from their own tree. While some folks in protected areas do grow them outside with elaborate winter protection strategies, they are, in most cases, much better off in pots. From the varieties that are most adaptable to container growing, we offer the ones with the best productivity and fruit quality. Figs as well as pomegranates are sub-tropical deciduous plants. They need a winter dormancy period in your basement or garage, with low light and temperatures in the range of 2-12˚C (35-55˚F) to promote bud formation. Potted

Fig : PETER'S HONEY 1 gallon pot


In stock

Peter Danna of Portland, Oregon procured this one from Sicily, where he was born. Since then it has established a reputation as one of the very best fresh eating figs. Glossy, lime-green fruit with delectably tender and sweet, dark amber flesh is also superb for drying and canning. Peter's Honey will thrive in a hot, sun-baked corner of your patio.
