Requires less water in fall and winter, more in growing season. Provide sheltered spot in colder zones; may die back and re-sprout from roots in spring. Fertilize in spring.
HISTORY
Lore The fig was one of the first plants ever to be cultivated by humans. Fossilized figs dating to 9400-9200 BC were found in an early Neolithic village in the Jordan Valley.
