A new release from a hobby fig collector discovered in Grimes, North Carolina zone 8. Discovered growing near the college campus in a front yard with no protection. Makes loads of very tasty yellowish figs with rich red berry pulp. Shows good resistance to disease, humidity, and cold.
PLEASE NOTE: If it is Autumn when you place your order then the plants leaves will be turning yellow and dropping. Your figs may thus be dormant and leafless upon arrival, or may have a few leaves still but they will be ready to drop soon.
Site requirements: Full sun location. Figs will grow in a range of soil types provided the planting location is well drained. Protected yet sunny locations, such as on the South, East or West side of a building is ideal.
Size at maturity: 8-15′, depending on location, climate and care.
Pollination: This fig requires no pollination in order to set fruit.
Resistant to: Figs are known for remarkable disease and insect resistance. Magnolia is resistant to mold, rotting, splitting after rain and fig rust (fungal disease of leaves). Ants can get interested in figs and heavy rains can make the current figs rot, so keep well-picked. Figs continue to put on new fruit constantly until frost.
Hardiness: USDA zones 8-10. Winter protection in zone 6-7 recommended.
Plant size: APPROXIMATELY 1-2 ft in 9 inch deep nursery tree pot.
