|Care||Prefers enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. 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.|
|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.|
