About Ischia Fig
Ischia Fig is an excellent, medium sized, sweet, green to greenish yellow, thin skinned fig with red flesh that resembles a strawberry when peeled. These are especially attractive when used in a fruit salad. It is recommended for areas with short summers. This cultivar offers much to the home gardener. It is small in ultimate size, so even small yards can contain one without difficulty. It bears from mid-season till late in the season to extend the harvest and the quality is excellent. The figs possess a fine, excellent flavor either fresh or dried. Due to its fairly well closed, small eye, they are resistant to spoilage by either weather or insects. Originally from Spain. It makes a small tree when mature and is one of the best to grow in containers.
