About the Italian Fig Tree Honey-sweet, and simply divine eating. The pale chartreuse skin is very slightly tart against the luscious, sweet pale amber flesh. Fruit is exquisite fresh, but also dries beautifully. “Closed eye” when ripe; helps resist splitting and souring. Minimal pruning needed, and grows well in containers. Heat- and drought-tolerant, though some fruit drop may occur if tree is dry for too long a period. For some reason, deer are not terribly interested in this variety. In warmer zones, a first crop is possible in late July and again in mid-September. The Italian Honey fig is self-fertile. Light: Bright, natural indirect sunlight Water: It is best to water when the top two inches of soil are dry and then remove any excess standing water after about 15 minutes to help prevent rotting the roots over time. Difficulty: Intermediate Air Purifying: Yes, known to remove formaldehyde from the air. Toxicity: Toxic to animals. Growth Rate: Moderate Common Names: Fig, Honey Fig, White Honey Fig, White Marseille Origin: Meditteranean Please note that fruit-bearing plants are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. *Please note: Plants may not look exactly as shown.
