The Blue Giant Fig tree produces the largest figs or any variety. The are large ovals with short necks, and the size of an apple. The purple-maroon flesh often has a bluish bloom, and the flesh is amber with purple touches. The flavor is delicious and sweet, full of honey and berry flavors, and of course it is best fully-ripened on the tree. Wait until the skin begins to crack before picking, and enjoy. This tree produces a large main crop in late summer and fall, with some possibility of an early summer crop as well if your winters are very mild.

  • The largest fruit of any fig – the size of an apple
  • Beautiful purple skin with a blue bloom, and amber flesh
  • A large main crop in late summer and into fall
  • A good variety for areas with mild winters and hot summers
  • Self-pollinating and vigorous

Plant your Blue Giant Fig tree in full sun, although it can take a little shade in zone 10. The soil should be well-drained and it doesn’t need to be rich – figs enjoy dry soils, including sands and rocky ground. Don’t overfeed or overwater, once your tree is established, as it has good drought resistance. Pests or diseases won’t trouble it, and it grows rapidly, probably giving you the first figs within 2 or 3 years.
