Description

New Product!

Honey-sweet, and simply divine eating. The pale chartreuse skin is very slightly tart against the luscious, sweet pale amber flesh. Fruit is exquisite fresh, but also dries beautifully. “Closed eye” when ripe; helps resist splitting and souring. Minimal pruning needed, and grows well in containers. Heat- and drought-tolerant, though some fruit drop may occur if tree is dry for too long a period. For some reason, deer are not terribly interested in this variety. In warmer zones, a first crop is possible in late July and again in mid-September. Self-pollinating.

Was looking for Potted plant for deck areas that will take heat. Fruit is added bonous.
FYI I bought blueberries but they were hard to keep alive in the pots. Lasted 2 years. I have 2 figs that are going on 5 years in pots right now.

Is this a disease resistant type of tree?
Lisa J on Mar 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Since figs are new-ish to the US there isn't a big issue with fig tree diseases here.
If two (self-pollinating) varieties have a lag in their expected harvests do they still help each others' pollination? I'm considering on that harvests in July and another with crop in September.
James M on Jul 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Yes they will still help one another for larger crop yields.

How do I plant a Supreme EZ Start fig tree? Is the 'pot' removed or is it bio-degradable?
Prozze on Jul 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. When you receive your tree you will remove it from the nursery pot and plant in to the ground or a container. I have attached the growing guide for figs which has planting instructions and other useful information on how to grow these successfully. https://www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/how-to-grow/fruit-trees/fig-trees

Do we ???have??? to plant this fig tree when we get it? Or can we plant the following year/season? If so, can we keep it in the container it ships in?
Vicki C on Jun 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. You do not have to plant right away, but the container it ships in is just a nursery sleeve and is not meant to leave your tree or plant in. You will want to transplant it to a larger container until you are ready to plant in to the ground.

I have 2 fig trees that never bear fruit. A Peter's Honey that is 4 years old and a yellow/green fig that is 6 year's old. The green/yellow fig was given to me and I was only told that it is of Greek origin. The Peter's Honey never gets a single fig. The yellow/green tree may get 1-2 a year. They get large but remain rock-hard. Is there anything I can do to encourage both to fruit? I compost annually with Black Cow, but I do not use fertilizer. Any suggestions appreciated.

Shipped well and early. Great looking little tree. In ground looks happy and growing very nice in our hot, humid zone 8. Bought plenty from Stark Bros - their products seem to do better than others and the prices are great. As soon as lil Figgy Pop produces I'll update but as always another happy purchase!
