• Description: Small decidous tree or shrub that ranges from 1-12m tall. The ‘Desert King’ variety is aSan Pedro fig, with two crops in a season – but usually only the first ripens in our climate.
  • Habitat: Requires full sun exposure, good drainage, and regular watering until it is fully established.
  • Edibility: ‘Desert King’ is an excellent choice for our area, as it has an abundant breba (first) crop which grows on the old branches and develops without pollination. Pruning can help the fruit to get enough sun to fully ripen.
  • Fun Fact: Fig leaves are also edible, and tasty as a wrap, flavouring or tea.
