This small to medium-sized tree is prized for its vigorous growth, improved resistance to cold and bountiful harvest. It produces small, purple-brown figs with sweet white flesh that mature and ripen in mid-June. Figs are often root hardy and prolific in zones 5 and 6 if planted in a sheltered location. An excellent container specimen. Deciduous.
