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 'Brown Turkey'
Ficus carica, Common Fig, Patio fruit tree
Specially selected for the UK climate, Fig ‘Brown Turkey’ is fully hardy and can be grown very successfully outdoors.

Fruits develop in spring and ripen from August to September. A second crop often develops in late summer and if protected, these fruits will ripen during the following summer. Height: 3m (9’). Spread: 4m (13’).
