Description

New Product!

The very best fig for containers! These cute, bite-sized figs are red-fleshed and super-sweet. Kids go wild for them, so dry plenty of them for nutritious snacks. Also delicious fresh, and quite a conversation piece as an appetizer. Excellent for growing indoors, in the greenhouse or on a patio. The tree is quite unusual in that it will produce a surprising amount of fruit even if grown in a pot as small as a 7-gallon. To increase fruit production, top the tree when young to encourage lateral branching. Tolerates some partial shade, though the harvest will be diminished.
“Closed eye” when ripe; helps resist splitting and souring. In warmer zones, a first crop is possible in late July and again in mid-September.

Why did you choose this?
Stark Bro's Store
I have wanted to add a fig tree to my indoor/container garden for a bit now, and I finally decided to do it. I was between this and the Brown Turkey, but the possibility of a sizable harvest of adorable fruit led me to choose the Little Ruby. I considered getting a second variety too, but I'm going to give the first one a year and see how where we're at.
