Panachée' Fig Tree

The Tiger from the 1600s

The Highlights

    • Also known as the 'tiger' fig due to its beautiful stripes
    • Produces an abundance of gorgeous crimson figs with a very sweet centre
    • These figs have a rich raspberry flavour
    • Best eaten fresh, or dried out to create a well-preserved fruity snack
    • Recorded in history as far back as 1668 in France
    • This self fertile tree produces deeply lobed, dark green summer leaves that turn yellow in autumn before falling
    • 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

Care Guide

Generally pest and disease free

Figs are generally trouble-free, but may be affected by cold weather, rotting of the fruits, scale insect and red spider mite especially if grown under glass. Birds may be a problem

Water Regularly in Summer

Fig trees require 11.5 inches (2.5-4cm) of water per week either from rainfall or watering. The tree will let you know if it needs to be watered by the yellowing of its foliage and dropping of leaves, although don't wait until this point to water as this will only stress it out and may produce fewer fruits. Every 10 days to 2 weeks should be sufficient

Sunny sheltered spot

Position in a sunny sheltered spot, against a south or west facing wall

Can grow in any soil

Fig can grow in virtually any soil type but prefer a slightly alkaline sandy-clay soil

Prune in mid-spring

In mid-spring remove 1/4-1/3 of older branches
