Ficus 'Brown Turkey' 3 Litres

SKU: 1061776

Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey', also known as Brown Turkey fig, is a deciduous fruit tree that is widely cultivated for its sweet and juicy figs. It is a hardy tree that can grow up to 5-6 metres in height and spread, although it can be kept smaller with regular pruning. The leaves are large and deeply lobed, with a rough texture and a bright green colour.

Brown Turkey figs are large and pear-shaped with a purplish-brown skin when ripe and pink flesh. They are highly prized for their sweet flavour and are commonly eaten fresh or dried, as well as used in jams and other desserts. The tree requires full sun and well-draining soil, and it is relatively drought-tolerant once established. If grown in a pot it needs to be kept moist to ensure a tasty crop.

Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey' is native to the Middle East and Mediterranean regions and is popular in many parts of the world, including the UK, where it can be grown successfully in warmer regions. It is best grown against a warm south-facing wall with the roots restricted from spreading or in a container. If growing in a pot protect the roots from hard frost for the first two winters by moving it into a cold greenhouse, or by wrapping the pot in fleece or similar during the cold months.
