Capelas is a great fig variety from the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores Islands of Portugal. Capelas is a large, golden brown fig with a tawny pink interior. Large Breba crop. Very sweet flavour. Capelas is good for short summer areas. For the West Coast it would prefer the warmest spot you have, or better yet, in a cold-frame.
If growing this tree in the ground on the West Coast, we recommend that you plant this tree in a very warm, sunny and protected spot. Then mulch fairly heavily around its’ base and finally protect it with a burlap wrap in mid-Winter for the first few years.
All Fig Trees are large 1-gallon size plants.
