Fig 'Izmir' M
Ficus carica Izmir, Fig from Izmir, from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria
This variety is one of the best fig varieties!
Izmir fig has a superb taste that can not be easily described. The meat is very tender, juicy and sweet. The taste is balanced, really great.
This fig grows and produces two crops quite well in the conditions of southern Bulgaria. It grows vigorously and reaches large size. This fig will produce main crop without pollination, but as with all figs, pollination gives far better results. The picture shows not pollinated and pollinated fruits. Larger fruit is pollinated. Its taste is completely different, much better.
Freeze damage starts at temperatures below -14 to -16 degrees Celsius, and the trees may freeze to the ground at temperatures below -18 degrees. In northern Bulgaria it can be grown with creeping crown, near to the ground.
