Black Genoa Fig
Ficus carica var. black genoa

A fast growing, medium sized deciduous tree 3-5m tall. Produces masses of excellent quality, delicious red fleshed, dark skinned fruit during the summer months. Great for any backyard.

For best results, plant in light free-draining, neutral soil in a warm sunny position. Enrich soil with well decomposed manure or compost and mulch well. Water well while fruiting. Figs are hardy and frost tolerant but grow best in a warm dry climate.

Fantastic fig eaten fresh off the tree or made into jam.
