Growing Calendar for Fig Tree - Brown Turkey
Delivery: Late October to Late April
Brown Turkey is the most reliable fig for the British climate and is well suited to growing in sheltered drier areas of the UK. It is easily capable of producing a heavy crop of sweet luscious fruit from late August.
Most suited to growing against a south facing wall or fence. Figs are very vigorous once established and are best managed by restricting the roots - ideally grow in a large pot or tub. Will become a handsome specimen in a year or so.
The delicious fruit can be eaten fresh, and is also becoming a popular ingredient for dessert cookery.
