With the Desert King Fig you will enjoy flesh that is richly flavored, fruit that is superb for fresh eating. The initial crop in the spring can be large if the tree is carefully pruned to manage shape or size, as a heavy winter clipping can reduce yield. Best to clip more often, taking less off per cut than to do a major prune all at once. The late summer crop will be less in hot summer areas, a bit more in cooler summer locales. Depending on how much fruit you desire, this may not be an issue for you. Figs enjoy a low chilling requirement, only 100 hours. Self fertile. Shipped potted in soil for best results.
