Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey'

Fig 'Brown Turkey'

Price: €19.95

Tall, sturdy plants. Fresh figs, ripe from the plant, are one of life's pleasures.  The variety 'Brown Turkey' is the best choice for experiencing that pleasure here in Ireland. The fruits ripen in late August and are best picked once they begin to droop on the stalk. Figs should be planted in a sheltered spot in full sun. Training them against a south facing wall in a fan-like arrangement works very well. Figs should always have their roots constricted in order to encourage better fruiting - ie line the planting hole with slate or blocks. Irish-grown plants 80-100cms tall in a 5 litre container. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
