About Magnolia Fig
Magnolia Fig is a good, medium to large sized tasty fig with attractive, deeply lobed leaves. The skin is reddish brown and the flesh is amber to strawberry colored. It is a vigorous, very hardy tree (known to survive 5º F without damage) with a light breba crop. The first crop is small but with very large fruit up to 4 inches long; second crop figs are medium size, copper brown with nearly seedless, sweet, rich flesh. The rich, sweet flavor is best when the flowers are pollinated. The figs are good fresh or preserved. This is one cultivar that is worth growing for the ornamental value alone. Reportedly the finest fig grown in Israel. Fruit tends to spoil after cool rains in November. Good for short summer areas.
