Fig trees make stunning garden features and produce bountiful crops of succulent fruits when grown in a sunny, sheltered position. For best results, grow them in large containers, which restricts root growth and promotes fruit production.
Fig 'Madeleine des Deux Saisons'
Ficus carica, Common Fig, Patio fruit treeDating back to ancient Versailles in the reign of Louis IV, Fig 'Madeleine des Deux Saisons' is particularly hardy and remains a worthy garden variety. With delicate pink coloured flesh and an exceptionally sweet flavour, the fruits are delicious eaten freshly picked. Literally translated as Madeleine of Two Seasons, this productive variety produces two crops per season during hot UK summers and if protected over winter the second crop will ripen early during the following summer. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 4m (13').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
