Design IdeasThis semi-dwarf Fig is well-suited for small city gardens where space is limited. If used as an accent tree, keep away from pavement so fallen fruit won't cause staining. Also makes a fine leafy background when allowed to grow into a large shrub. This Fig will bear fruit in most climates.
