In the fall of 2007 I made a goal of planting 1000 trees....

0279: Tiger Fig

A friend passed this fig off to me. I planted it on the side of the house where I can espalier it on the west wall in the zone between house and fence I call "Death Alley" due to the warm afternoon heat. Here I have cacti and succulents thriving. I hope to give the fig the long warm season it needs to ripen it's fruit.

Family: Moraceae
Genus: Ficus
Species: F. carica
Cultivar: Ficus carica 'Panachée'

Photo to come.
