Osborne's Prolific Fig Tree

One of the most heavily fruiting figs

The Highlights

    • One of the most heavily fruiting varieties of fig tree
    • Ideal for a cooler UK climate
    • Can grow in partial shade and is easy to prune and maintain
    • Great tasting fig with cream coloured flesh and purplish-brown striped skin appearing in late summer
    • Features rounded, deeply lobed, dark green leaves turning yellow in autumn
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
