1-2ft ''Brunswick' Fig Tree | 9cm Pot
Fig Tree 'Brunswick' - 3L Pot
This Fig has very large pear-shaped fruit with a greenish yellow skin, tinged brown in the sun. The flesh is yellow and red in the centre and sweet to the taste. This is a particularly heavy cropping variety that is popular with amature gardeners for that reason combined with its hardy nature. The Brunswick is very attractive tree with elegant, deeply lobed, hand shaped leaves and the bright fruit make for an exciting interest. The fruit is produced early in the season, during august, a few weeks before Brown turkey. This fig is ideally suited for growing in a container for your patio, as long as there is ample sun.

    Caring and Maintenance

    Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.

    Planting

    • Planting Distance: 1.2m

    These soft fruits will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 4.0 - 6.0 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
    Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

    Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

    Fruit Benefits

    These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
