Dwarf Fig Review by Andria - Tonopah, NV

I just got my fig last spring. I have had it inside the past 4 months & it is growing like crazy, but very bushy. Sure adds interest with my house plants!




Impressed Review by Danny - Springfield, MO

I ordered this and some other plants for gifts to my mother several years ago. My dad kept it in a pot and took it inside when it got cold. It was mediocre at best in the pot. When my mother passed my dad gave me the tree and I planted it in my front yard. It has flourished every since. It produces great fruit and comes back every year bigger than the last.

For those who would like to grow fruit trees but have limited space, our dwarf fig plant is an excellent solution. With the largest dwarf varieties topping out at about 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide, they're a perfect fit for small yards, patios or greenhouses. A dwarf fig is perfect for container planting and fares well through the winter in Zones 8-11. In other zones, it is recommended that they overwinter indoors or that cover be provided. Figs prefer light to medium well-drained soil, but can grow in nutritionally poor soil as well. Be sure to plant in a space with adequate sunlight, as they will not bloom in low-light environments. The dwarf fig can tolerate seasonal drought, but needs to be watered about every 2-3 days if it's container-planted. In-ground figs do not need feeding, but container grown trees should be lightly fed 3 times per year. The smoky-soft grey green of the foliage is lush and lovely.

Native to the Middle East, the Ficus Carica Fig has been cultivated for their delicious fruit since ancient times. A dwarf fig tree produces equally delicious full sized fruits, with tender skin and sweet, juicy flesh. There are numerous varieties of dwarf figs with fruits ranging in color from golden-green to honey-brown to deep, velvety purple. Your dwarf tree will begin producing succulent fig fruit in as little as 2-4 years.
