Description Fine Print
 
Ficus carica 'Desert King' is very productive and reliable especially in cool summer climates, producing abundant, yellowish-green figs with sweet and richly flavourful, strawberry coloured flesh. In coastal BC it ripens in late July and early August with abundant crops produced over about three weeks. Get ready to eat fresh figs every day, serve them with goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto, and make fig jam. Plus you need friend and neighbours to give them to!
