Fig Tree Bundle
Our Fig Tree Bundle includes four distinct varieties and is a great choice if you are having a hard time trying to decide which delicious varieties to grow. It features the early ripening Desert King that produces a large breba crop, the mid-season Conadria that produces large figs with a very high sugar content, the incredibly delicious and beautiful Col de Dame Noir late in the season, and the uniquely striped Panache.
The Fig Tree Bundle includes:
Col de Dame Noir Fig Tree
A fantastic French fig with a thick elongated neck said to resemble the collar of a lady. Col de Dame Noir produces figs with a dark brown to nearly black skin and a bright red juicy flesh. One of the best tasting figs, though not the earliest ripening.
Conadria Fig Tree
Conadria is an excellent fig that was introduced by Ira Condit and bred by him at the California Agricultural Experiment Station in Riverside, California. It produces incredibly large figs and is very sweet. Also resists cracking and spoiling in humid climates.
Desert King Fig Tree
One of the best varieties for the Northwest, Desert King is very productive and reliable, producing abundant, yellowish-green figs with sweet and richly flavorful, strawberry colored flesh. Because it ripens in mid summer, Desert King is a great variety for gardeners in coastal, high elevation, and other cool regions. Desert King also withstands fruit damaging late spring frosts better than any other variety we grow. We sometimes call this fig the Dessert King!!
Panache Tiger Fig Tree
The distinctive Panache Tiger Fig Tree produces attractive fruits with a green and yellow striped exterior. When ripe, the fruit inside is strawberry red with a slightly dry but extremely sweet flesh. The plants have good vigor, with growth up to 12 feet tall and multiple branches. Fruits ripen very late in the season, so Tiger Fig plants thrive in climates with long growing seasons in Zones 7-10.

Fig Mosaic Virus is a benign virus that exists in all cultivated fig trees. Yellow spotting of the leaves is a cosmetic symptom that shows more in container culture, but is quickly outgrown once trees are planted in the ground. The presence of FMV in all cultivated figs has become widely accepted, as even the national germplasm repository for figs maintained by the USDA has Fig Mosaic Virus. If the presence of FMV is a concern, then purchasing fig trees may not be the best option for you.
USDA Zone: 7-10
