Osborne Prolific Fig Gives Two Delicious Crops A Year
- Large, Sweet Fruit
- Two Crops A Year
- Disease Resistant
Figs, figs everywhere! That's the sentiment when you plant our Osborne Prolific Fig. This aptly named cold-hardy tree lives up to its "prolific" moniker, producing two crops each year. The first each spring is produced on old wood, and the second later on in the fall on its new growth.
For the grower, this means not one but two bumper crops of sweet, plump and delicious figs to look forward to each and every year.
Come springtime, watch in amazement as your dwarf-sized fig tree begins to hang heavy with red-hued, brown-skinned fruit. The large figs produced by the Osborne Prolific Fig have beautiful amber-colored, pink blushed flesh that's simply sweet and scrumptious.
Once you've had your fill of your spring crop, you'll find yourself eagerly awaiting your fall harvest of Figs from your Osborne Prolific Fig Tree just in time for holiday baking and jam making.
Figs are a delicious fruit that's all too often overlooked but that provide a host of culinary and snacking options. Eat them by themselves for a sweet treat that's indulgent yet guilt-free, serve them with cheese and nuts on a charcuterie tray, or slice them over a dish of vanilla bean ice cream.
Figs are also delicious when cooked in with a pot of steel-cut oatmeal, roasted with honey, or stuffed with your favorite soft cheese and baked. Add them to salads, roast them with meat, or chop them and fold them into cookie or muffin batter. The possibilities are truly unlimited when you have your own fig tree.
This low-maintenance, disease-resistant tree is lovely to behold, even without its mounds of fruit. Its beautiful leaves grow up to 10 inches in length, taking on a lobed appearance. Plant it in the ground in Zones 7-9, or turn it into a container tree with simple pruning, easily shaping it as you desire. You can keep this tree to any size you like with pruning.
Our Osborne Prolific Fig adapts well to cool short summers, produces easily in Southern California and does great against walls and sunny locations on the East Coast. Order today and enjoy your figs!
