Italian Fig

Italian Fig

$25.00

Ficus carica 'Lattarula' (Fig), aka White Honey Fig is a deciduous shrub with a spreading crown clothed in leathery, lobed leaves. Insignificant flowers form inside a hollow receptacle in spring that, when mature, enlarges and becomes fleshy, becoming an edible, medium-sized fruit, at first green, but golden when ripe.

The fruit ripens in late summer or fall on new wood. As the figs mature, you’ll need to harvest them daily by clipping them from their stems. This plant is self-fertile and does not need cross pollination.

Plants and pots sold separately.
