A Hungarian selection, famous for its cold tolerance.Red-brown, very cold tolerant, large, flattened on top, violet fruited variety from Central Europe, very hardy and self fertile, ideal for UK conditions. Fruit size can reach 80-100g with dark red flesh, it matures in September. Parthenocarpic, so no need of fig wasp for pollination. Suitable for pot growing. This is the well known fruit, cultivated since ancient times and grows wild in dry and sunny areas. It is mostly cultivated around the world for its fruits but it is also a great architectural plant with very ornamental leaves, plus the foliage turns yellowish in the Autumn. After their fall, the fruits often remain on the bare branches. We have different leave forms, deeply lobed to slightly lobed. Figs can be found in continental climates with hot summers as far north as Hungary and Moravia, and can be harvested up to four times per year. Thousands of cultivars, most named, have been developed as human migration brought the fig to many places outside its natural range. Two crops of figs are potentially produced each year, but in UK conditions. Most common figs have all female flowers that do not need pollination; the fruit develops through parthenocarpic means, but there are varieties which requires the fig wasp for pollinisation (this insect usually cannot live in UK climate, this is why parthenocarpic varieties have to be used here to have fruits). Strongly growing, fresh plants in a 9cm pot. The second image shows what can be achieved in a pot, 2 years after planting and the third photo shows what you will receive.
