BROWN TURKEY - A vigorous, productive tree, and one of the hardiest figs. Lots of purplish-brown skinned fruit with sweet pink flesh. It crops over a 3 month period, from February to April. The trees are tolerant of a wide range of conditions, including coastal. They prefer full sun, but will fruit in partial shade. Keep the roots moist till fruit forms, but don't over water. They don't need much manure either.
DWARF VENTURA (Ficus Carica Ventura) - These are dwarf trees that grow to about 2m high by 1.5m wide. They bear fabulous fruit on very young wood and are ideally suited to the small garden or for growing in containers. Moderately hardy, they will thrive in most soils, and tolerate wind. Plant in full sun, fertilise moderately, and prune for shape. Self fertile.
