Ficus carica / Fig Espaliered Tree




Ficus carica, better known as the common fig tree, is the tree species that produces the famous green, black or purple figs.

Ficus carica requires  well-drained soil.

Ficus carica is indifferent to soil type, but development is slower in poor and rocky soil.

A warm and sunny location is almost mandatory if you’re hoping for figs. Consider planting your trees near a wall, since the added protection will help your plants withstand the cold and help to ripen the fruit. Even without the fruit this tree is a beauty with wide open branches and large, lime green floppy leaves, it makes a beautiful specimen.
