Rare Varities Of Figs Trees & Cuttings Sales
Pick Up - Rumson, Monmouth County New Jersey (NJ)
Fruit-producing fig trees, known botanically as the Ficus carica species, can be grown successfully even in New Jersey (NJ) in large containers such as wine barrels, provided there is proper drainage and the soil quality and moisture is maintained. Fig trees grow to between 10 and 30 feet in height and spread. According to the California Rare Fruit Growers Association, slow-growing or compact cultivars are ideal for wine barrels and other similarly confined soil spaces. Container planting also allows you the option to move the tree indoors when temperatures threaten to drop below 30 degrees F, thereby protecting the plant tissues and fruit crops from frost damage.
