Red Lebanese Fig Tree

A delicious fig that ripens its main crop earlier than almost any other variety! Red Lebanese produces figs that are fairly small, but its part of what makes it so delicious to us is the flavor and texture of the skin balancing perfectly with the sweet flesh. Crops are incredibly productive and the flavor has a great flavor punch, somewhat similar to the Chicago Hardy fig.

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)!

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.
