About:

Brown Turkey Fig is a small fruit tree producing an abundance of generously sized brown skinned figs. The decorative, exotic looking, fragrant fruits have a juicy, sweet flavour and taste amazing. Brown Turkey is a popular variety of fig for the home gardener because it's extremely easy to grow. This minimal care fruit tree will leave more time for enjoying the benefits of growing your own fresh fruit at home. Brown Turkey Fig is an
excellent addition to oval or rectangle shaped gardens in a larger yard and will cast a welcoming summer shade. But don't feel like you'll miss out if your home's landscape has limited space, because this tree flourishes in a pot and makes an attractive edible display on the patio. Figs are at their most delicious when the fruit is soft, so pick your home grown crop when they soften and droop. Devour your figs fresh, leave to dry, or spend some
quality time in the kitchen whipping up a tempting jam.
