Known as ‘The tree of life’ by the ancient Egyptians and much enjoyed by Cleopatra and Ulysses, the fig is a wonderful and delicious  species.

Remnants of figs have been found in excavations of sites traced to at least 5,000 B.C. making the edible fig one of the first plants that was cultivated by humans.

The common fig (Ficus carica) is a large, deciduous shrub or small tree native to southwest Asia and the Mediterranean region.

Figs are ideal in tubs or pots as bushes or half standards. When grown for their architectural impact in the garden however, figs are not fruit trees for small places. The roots are greedy, traveling far beyond the tree canopy.

The spreading root system is quite shallow and competitive, giving nearby plants a fairly hard time (and is adept at cracking its way into underground sewer pipe systems).

FIG THE FRUIT:

Fig 1 figs

Although commonly referred to as a fruit, the fig fruit is actually the flower of the tree, known as an inflorescence (an arrangement of multiple flowers), a false fruit or multiple fruit, in which the flowers and seeds grow together to form a single mass.

The fruit varies in colour from yellowish-green to coppery, bronze, or dark-purple depending on the cultivar.

Two crops of figs are potentially produced each year. The first, called the breba crop, develops in the spring on last year’s growth.

In contrast, the main fig crop develops on the new growth and ripens in the late summer or fall. The main crop is generally superior in both quantity and quality than the breba crop.
