A Taste of Honey!

Italian Honey Fig Tree

Trade Gallon (3qt)
Item # 48222
$24.95

2 crops each year!

Incredibly sweet figs taste great right off the tree, dried, or preserved.
Nothing compares to the rich, sweet flavor of fresh tree ripened figs! With this slow-growing, very heavy-bearing variety you get not one but TWO crops of yummy figs every year -- from a tree that reaches a generous but very manageable 15 feet high!

The delicious, honey fleshed fruit of this hybrid does not need hot summer weather to ripen, so plants produce two generous crops each year, even in the North! You don't need another Fig for pollination, either (though your yields will improve with other Figs nearby.) This fruit is excellent fresh, dried, or preserved! Zones 7-10.

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?

For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
