Fig (Ficus carica) – Brown Turkey
Location: 2nd Hugelkultur row bed
Purchased from Raintree Nursery
Planted: Spring 2011
USDA Zones: 7-11
Description from nursery: Most reliable in our region. The skin is mahogany in color and the flesh is a light amber and very sweet. The hardy tree will bear heavily and can have two crops of large delicious fruit a year.
Received plant in April from Raintree in a one gallon pot. I allowed the plant to break dormancy and leaf out and waited to plant in the ground until after the last frost.
