CARE INSTRUCTIONSFigs are very hardy plants with vigorous root systems. Plant them in an area where roots can spread out. They also respond well to pruning which should be done in winter when tree is dormant.
A self-pollinating, drought-tolerant (once established) deciduous tree that produces exceptionally large, deep purple sweet figs. Rich green foliage casts dense shade and stands out against smooth, gray bark. Intensely sweet fruit ripens for harvest from June until September and must be harvested regularly to protect from birds. This variety can be kept small with regular pruning and does well as a container plant.
