Each of these attractive standard fig trees originates from a magnificent specimen which has stood for many years on London's Chelsea Embankments, overlooking the River Thames. Well known to locals as a 'free fruit bowl', this parent plant has lovely olive green foliage and bears high yields of well flavoured fruit.
Fig 'Chelsea' is supplied with a small head of branches above a straight single stem to create an attractive standard tree that is ideally suited to growing in patio containers. The delicious figs 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: 2m (78"). Spread: 1m (39").
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
