Harvest Large, Sweet FigsTwice a Year

The Desert King Fig is a good choice for cooler climates. It is a large, deep green fig with strawberry red flesh.

The King Fig Tree is a heavy producer of excellent quality, sweet figs. The tree sets a large early crop from June to August, then sets a secondary crop.

Because it ripens in mid-summer, Desert King is a great variety for gardeners in coastal, high elevation, and other cool regions.

 It makes a good container tree in colder climates as well. Figs are wonderful for fresh eating and make delicious jam and dried fruit.

The fig fruit is unique. Unlike most fruit in which the edible structure is matured ovary tissue, the fig's edible structure is actually stem tissue.

The fig fruit is an inverted flower with both the male and female flower parts enclosed in stem tissue.
