Description

Fig Fruiting Trees

Fruiting Fig Tree are ancient trees, depicted in art and written documents thousands of years old. It is touted for its health benefits, which include ample amounts of fiber and essential nutrients, including manganese, calcium, selenium, iron, copper, zinc, and potassium. Figs also provide the antioxidant vitamins - vitamins A, E, and K. Some research suggests that consuming figs may benefit those with type II diabetes, as the fig is known to lower blood sugar levels.
 
 

Fruiting Fig Tree produces a sweet, firm, and meaty fruit in mid-summer to early fall.

 

 
 
Figs can be eaten fresh, canned for jams and jellies, or dried and added to your favorite cookie recipe or trail mix. The fig also pairs well with spinach salads or wine and cheese. Figs are also regarded as ornamental trees. Most varieties feature spreading branches full of glossy, green leaves. Lovely fruits hang in pairs or bunches and sport a range of colors, including green, yellow, brown, purple, and red.

 

Fruiting Fig Tree enjoy a sunny location.

 
Your fig will thrive in a protected area, such as along a wall or fence. Since they are self-pollinating, you only need one tree to enjoy the succulent fruit. However, placing two or more trees in the same vicinity will result in cross-pollination and a more abundant crop.
 

Figs will not ripen once harvested, so allow them to soften and change color before you collect them from the tree.

 
Native to Italy and Greece, the fig is adaptable to most temperate climates. Many fig varieties are hardy in zones 5 through 10 but may need to be given protection from heavy frosts in zones 5 and 6. The root is typically vigorous in these zones, but the upper portion of the tree will die back in temperatures below 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Figs can be grown as potted plants in colder regions and brought indoors during the winter, even while bearing fruit.
