Short Description

Native to southern France, Marseilles was Thomas Jefferson's favorite fig.

Full Description

It was Thomas Jefferson—Founding Father, president, farmer and horticulturalist—who introduced ‘White Marseilles’, his favorite fig, to this still-grateful nation. ‘White Marseilles’ he wrote, is “unquestionably superior to any fig I have ever seen.” We quite agree. Native to southern France, in late July, the lovely trees produce a great big harvest of greenish-yellow fruit packed with sweetly delicious pale-yellow flesh. Super-productive trees are well suited to the Northeast and Northwest.
