Fantasia™ Fig

Flavor Favorite of Research Staff


This Louisiana State University release is a flavor favorite of our research staff. The large, black-skinned fruits offer a perfect mix of acids and sugars, giving them an intense fig flavor. The fruits have attractive pink flesh and mature in late August. Figs should be allowed to ripen on the tree—and are excellent for fresh eating and dried. Fantasia Fig trees produce fruit two years after planting and are resistant to fig diseases. Growing up to 25 ft. tall, the trees are quite ornamental with large, tropical-looking green leaves. They can be grown as specimen plants or in patio containers. This variety is well adapted to the humid Southeast. Self-pollinating. Bareroot. Zones 7-9.
