Cyprus is a hardy tree that produces light grey-brown figs with honey-coloured interior. Delicious and fine-grained. Original tree was located in Victoria, BC; owned by a gentleman who was adamant that the variety of the tree was called ‘Cyprus’ – despite there being not much documentation of this variety in circulation. So it is possible that this tree is misnamed. What is known is that it is a dependably hardy and productive tree that produces luscious, rich-flavoured figs. This ones’ a keeper! We obtained this variety from our friend and fellow fruit enthusiast, Jane Lighthall.
We recommend that you plant this tree in a sunny and protected spot; then mulch fairly heavily around its’ base. Finally, protect it with a burlap wrap in mid-winter for the first few years.
All Fig Trees are large 1-gallon size plants.
