Desert King Fig
z. 7 – 10
The most recommended and grown variety for the BC coast. Cold-hardy, very productive and reliable. This tree produces loads of lusciously sweet figs every August. We have been telling gardeners for years that if you are only planting one fig tree in your yard, this should be it! The large high-quality figs are greenish-yellow with a sweet and rich strawberry-coloured interior. Yum! Desert King produces a huge ‘breba’ (first) crop on last years’ wood. Plant this fig tree – what are you waiting for!! *Please note, that this variety may not be the ideal choice for our friends in the East, as a container fig. *
If growing this tree in the ground on the West Coast, we recommend that you plant this tree in a 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.
