Full Description

The ‘Texas Everbearing’ fig is a reigning star in Figland. Hardy shrubs offer up a magnanimous harvest of soft, sweet, bell-shaped, dark-mahogany-purple fruits dense with sublime sweet pink-amber flesh. Figs are irresistible for fresh eating and fabulously flavorful in jellies, jams, cookies, and cakes. Growing to 12' high and 12' wide, stunning landscape shrubs (sometimes growing to small trees) come attired in shiny 3-5" lobed green foliage: visual background music for the plethora of yellow figs. Yields a moderate harvest of figs in May, before producing an impressively larger encore crop June through August. For peak flavor experience, let figs ripen on trees. As deer and birds are ardent fig-fanciers, protect your tree with netting when fruits are in evidence.

Fig, Texas, Ever-bearing is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from From a tiny plant to a healthy bush! We have not tasted the fruit yet, but the twig with leaves has grown into a healthy young 3’ plant! We put it in mostly shade this year to simulate it growing under under another tree. Now that it is fall in Texas, we are putting it in direct sunlight. It has gotten extremely wet due to heavy rains or we would have not given it prolonged direct sun yet. Beautiful green tropical looking leaves and strong straight vertical “trunks” plus plenty of extra shoots to take cuttings of for more plants if we like the fruit! 4 stars since we have not tasted the fruit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nowhere Near 3-5 inches, No New Growth This arrived looking puny and shabby. It was scarcely 2 inches tall, let alone 3-5 inches. It has not grown at all and I am rather disappointed. Fig plants I have purchased elsewhere were much larger and harder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really too soon to say I somehow expected that for $20 the fig "tree" that I received would be taller than 2 1/2". It is too soon to say anything else about it except that it is cute, but I wonder how many years it will take to reach fruiting size!
