Notes

Height and spread: +2,5m x +2,5m

*Has unusual "duckfeet" shaped leaves.

*The skin of ripe figs are rather unattractive but the excellent taste makes up for this.

*It is a very vigorous, upright and compact growing plant.

*It is bushy and tends to sucker.

*The small ostiole which is sealed with nectar makes the fig very resistant against souring and spoiling. It should do well in humid, wet areas.

*Was developed by the Texas Agricultural Test Station in the U.S.A. and released in 1974. This is an interspecies hybrid between Ficus carica and F. palmata.

*A very productive, heavy bearer from an young age.
