Fig 'White Adriatic'
Dating back to 1856 and once described as an Italian variety that is 'filled with strawberry jelly', this superbly flavoured fig produces fruits that are green tinted amber when ripe and filled with a strawberry-red pulp. Suited to fresh eating, drying and preserves. Self-fertile.
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.
