Landscape & Garden Uses

Interested in edible landscaping? What could be more enjoyable and rewarding than installing a landscape you can eat? With their large and bold leaves fig trees are a fine specimen for use in the edible landscape while producing a bold tropical effect...and you'll be rewarded with loads of delectably delicious figs!




Cultural Preferences

Fig trees will grow reasonably well in most soil types. They produce the best fruit in moderately to slightly acidic, moist but well-drained fertile soil that is rich in organic matter. In soil with low fertility it'll be worth your time to mix in some organic compost to the native soil. They like the soil to hold a good supply of water, especially when the fruits are developing in summer, but not so much water that the soil stays constantly soggy or wet, which can be problematic. The best and most fruits will are produced when trees are growing in full sun. However, fig trees that receive a little shade during the hottest part of summer days will still produce good crops.

NOTE: If you try to grow this one in USDA Zone 7 it would be a good idea to provide some winter protection. A heavy layer of mulch will help protect the roots during winter. Planting on the east side of a home, or where the tree will be sheltered from north and western winds.
