Ficus carica (Fig Tree)

Fig Tree

Ficus carica 'Celeste'

A popular fruit tree for Texas that grows well in the ground or in containers. The tree sap is milky and irritating to the skin. Not ideal for small landscapes, as it can feasilbly grow 40' feel tall and wide and block out sunlight to any plants under it.

Fig trees normally put out two crops - the Breba Crop and Main Crop. The Breba Crop is the first, with fruits appearing in the spring on last seasons' new growth. The Main Crop comes in the fall on that seasons' new growth.

Growth as mentioned can get quite overbearing, and loss of fruits is likely if pruned heavily.

Water young fig trees regularly till established. Thereafter, provide a deep watering every one or two weeks. Fig Trees benefit from heavy mulching, which retains the soil moisture.
