A Little Fig Tree in the Yard - Nature 110

 Many people love fig fruit, but some avoids consuming it because of sweetness or high calorie contents, especially for diabetes patients.

The scientific name of fig tree is Ficus carica. Other names of fig tree are edible fig tree, common fig tree or just a fig tree.

The plant native to Asia and Mediterranean regions, hence, it is good to grow in the states with warmer climate.

We may find this plant in the states such as:
- Louisiana, Texas, Florida
- California, Oregon
- Georgia, North Carolina and many others.


Image 2- The plant starts to produce fruit.

If we plant the fig trees in our yard, they could produce the first fruit about 4 years. Some people said between 3 to 6 years.

The timing to begin to bear fruit, sure, depend on several factors, some of them are:
- variety
- climates
- and growing conditions.

From the time fruit emerges (sets), the ripe of fruit needs about 70 day, then the fruits are ready to be picked up.

Price of fig fruit is relative expensive compared to other 10 favorite fruits sold by many groceries, includes Walmart.

  9. Joining you from Mosaic Monday! I love figs. When I was young, we ate many Fig Newtons - they must have been inexpensive, or my mother would not have bought them. These days, occasionally my husband will buy dried figs - so good!!! And fig jam - incredible with cheese and crackers!!!
