Fig (Ficus carica) – Texas Blue Giant
Location: 2nd Hugelkultur row bed
Purchased from Raintree Nursery
Planted: Spring 2011
USDA Zones: 7-11
Description from nursery: Huge fig with attractive purple skin and a delicious melting amber flesh. A winner in the south, it thrives in Texas and other hot desert areas or grown inside in the North.
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.
