Fig ‘Ischia’ (Ficus carica)
Figs are well-loved as container plants because they bear fruit at a young age and are self-fruitful without the need of a cross-pollinator. ‘Ischia’ is a productive yellow-skinned fig. The sweet, succulent fruit is large and can measure up to 2” in diameter with a reddish interior. They can be eaten fresh or dried to enjoy later. This fig tree can produce two crops a year, especially if it’s grown in a warm location during the fall months to give the second crop time to ripen. Give ‘Ischia’ plenty of sun and warmth and it will create figs of the finest quality.
