Ficus carica 'Desert King'

Synonyms: DFIC 85, Charlie, Grasa’s Adriatic, King, White King, Dessert King

Thrives in cooler climates, producing a large and early breba crop even in the absence of summer heat. May set a second fall crop in warmer regions.  The exceptionally large, green-skinned fruit has strawberry flesh of excellent quality.

An attractive, prolific tree for garden or landscape.  This tree can be fruitfully maintained as a 6' bush or 12' small tree by pruning 2-4 year-old wood back to the ground or a permanent raised scaffold. (See video above-left.) In its natural form, 'Desert King' will grow to a 25' large tree. 

Hardiness: Hardy to between 0° & 5° F.
Size at Maturity: 8-10 ft. in height with pruning
Taste: Sweet and rich flavor
Fruit Skin: Yellowish-green
Fruit Flesh: Strawberry colored
