Product Description
Fig Brown Turkey

A hardy outdoor variety that is also suitable for growing under glass.

A reliable and heavy cropper producing brown fruits with deep red flesh and a rich sweet flavour.

Suitable for growing in a container and ideal for training against a wall, best in a well drained soil in sunny, sheltered position. Ready for picking in August to September.

Rich in minerals and a good source of potassium and iron. Eat fresh or use in jams, jellies and chutneys.

This deciduous spreading shrub is highly ornamental, with large, glossy, palmate leaves. It is best grown against a south or south-west facing wall, where, in long hot summers it will produce an abundant crop of brown, pear-shaped fruit with red flesh. These figs are rich and sweet and available for picking from August to September. An interesting and easy plant to grow, and one of the oldest fruits in cultivation.

Plant in a 40cm (15in) pot in the ground or in a lined pit to restrict root-growth - unrestricted root growth leads to poor fruiting. Prune in spring when all chance of frost has past. Remove any frost-damaged or weak branches, and thin out shoots to let light in. Some pruning may be required in summer - trim all new shoots back to five or six leaves.

This plant is grown in a 3 litre pot.
