Fig - Ficus 'Brown Turkey'
Large, architectural leaves and sweet, coppery-coloured fruit with pinkish-white flesh that is ready for picking between August and September. This is a highly ornamental, deciduous fig that is suitable for training on wires outdoors or under glass.

It should be grown against a south or west-facing wall to prevent the top-growth from being killed off in strong, cold winds. Restricting the spread of the roots in the ground or growing in a pot helps to encourage a plentiful display of fruit. A prolific, reliable cropper that can be trained as an espalier and becomes drought tolerant once established. Figs are ripe when the stalk bends and the fruit hangs down and produces a droplet of sugar from the base. Figs are surprisingly hardy but winter protection is advisable – thick fleece is ideal.
