Popone Fig Tree

A delicious striped fig from Italy that produces both a breba and a main crop. Flavor is sweet with a nice berry taste and will improve as the tree ages. Popone is also one that tends to taste better in dry summer climates along the West Coast. The striped figs are beautiful and trees will ocassionally throw out a fully variegated leaf.

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 most tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
