Ficus carica - Fig Black Genoa Fig Tree Fruiting Fig

Figs are fast growing long lived trees that make excellent specimens, shade trees or hedging plants. The White Genoa  is a uniquely flavoured fig with sweet flesh. Good for eating, drying and jam.

Height: 9 metres.

Width:  9 metres.

Growth rate: Moderate.

Form: Round, slightly conical-shaped

Foliage: Light to dark green

Flowers:Flowers are actually carried inside the fruit.

Polination:  Figs do not require pollination (Self fertile).

Fruit: Mid season and good in cool areas with large greenish-yellow fruit with amber flesh, good fresh eating variety and favoured for jam making. Light crop in Dec and more in Feb-Mar, unique flavour
Tolerances: While young they may need some frost protection but once established are resistant to all but the severest conditions.Plant in a sunny sheltered well drained position rich in lime, heavy soils are okay provided they are well drained.  If planting more than one tree plant about 6-8 metres apart, aim for an open vase shape and mulch as they have shallow roots.  They require a fairly minimal level of care being so hardy, too much fertiliser results in leaf rather than fruit growth.  The most productive fig trees can often be found in neglected gardens.

Landscape use:  Good specimen tree, shade tree, hedging plant
