FIG TREES. 'Ice Crystal'
The Ficus Carica 'Ice Crystal' is a variety of fig tree that is sought after for its very decorative foliage as well as its fig production. The pretty leaves are dark green and deeply divided, similar in shape to ice crystals hence its variety name. Being deciduous the leaves do shed in Winter but not before providing a lovely display of warm yellow. The figs themselves are dark purple in colour with sweet and flavourful flesh inside. This fig variety are self fertile, fully hardy and tolerant of coastal conditions. These figs are a dwarf form and are branched from the base rather than being a tall stem with branching from the top.
Fig trees instantly bring a piece of the Mediterranean to your garden. Grown in a sunny, sheltered position they will produce bountiful crops of delicious sweet fruits even in the UK.
Caring for your Fig Tree is easy, remember they are a fruit tree so they will need feeding. Feed with tomato feed every 2-3 weeks from when the figs first appear, through the growing season until they start to ripen.
Great for growing in containers, as restricting root growth encourages fruiting.
