Description

New Product!

A queen among figs. Bountiful, hardy shrub-tree presents a generous amount of deep purple, pear-shaped fruit with pinkish-gold flesh that is sweet as candy — and just as hard to resist. Moderately closed small eye helps with splitting and souring issues. Use in cakes, jams and cookies, or run fig halves under the broiler, drizzle with honey and enjoy with a little mascarpone or cream cheese. The large, shiny, lobed foliage is almost as pretty as the fruit. Breba crop ripens in May, with a larger harvest from June through August. As with all figs, these are best left to ripen on the tree. Netting is advised when fruits become visible to keep birds and deer from enjoying your harvest. Self-pollinating. Photo courtesy of Fir002, Creative Commons License.
