    Ficus carica. -Fig Lattarula Italian Honey

    Information below is only the potential the plant has. You will be receiving one plant between 3 and 8 inches in height shipped in a 3 inch deep pot.

    We just can't stop ourselves from adding to our collection of figs and this one is extra special at least we think so; with medium to large very sweet fruit and an excellent breba and fall crop it's hard to go wrong with this guy. While rumored to be able to survive lower than our recommended zones of 7 through 10 it can be grown outside of these zones in the warmer months and brought indoors during the winter. Wonder if your figs are ripe? The fruit stem should be hanging/drooping from the branch and the fruit should be soft. Still not sure? If you pick an unripe fig it will snap off and ooze white liquid indicating it is not ripe. Fig trees can grow for a very long time so be sure to always plan out where you want them to stay or plant them in a container where they will be smaller and you can move them around.
