Fig 'Black Genoa'
A popular variety with almost black fruit and striking dark red flesh inside. One of the highest yielding varieties, it will bear two crops a year in most climates. Produces large fruits that are packed with sweetness and best eaten fresh or used in jams. Self-pollinating.
Plant figs in full sun in a soil enriched with decomposed manure and compost, preferably with a neutral pH. While tolerant of most soils, figs require adequate drainage and dislike wet or waterlogged sites. Mediterranean plants, figs will tolerate periods of dry soil, but this may reduce cropping. Stake at planting and protect from strong winds which will damage the fragile branches. Mulch well at planting.
