Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig Tree
A lovely little dwarfing fig growing only 4-7 feet tall. Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig produces figs similar to Chicago Hardy with a beautiful purple skin and bright red flesh. An excellent dwarfing fig for the patio or anywhere you’re short on space but still want to have some figs.
One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh Figs you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
