3 very hardy and self fertile fig varieties: Ice, Scone and Cigar (Banana). All are very sweet and early maturing, so they will the best chance to mature under the British climate.


Ice (Jég - in Hungarian): red fleshed and early maturing, with brown skin, flattened fruit (beautiful shape),


Scone (Pogácsa - in Hungarian): large fruits (up to 100g) with violet skin (dark red flesh) and droplet shape (flattened on top)


Cigar (Szivar - in Hungarian): dark brown skinned (almost black when overripe), elongated, medium sized fruits (similar to the Banana fig).


All are Hungarian selections with very good cold tolerance and all are self fertile, so no need of fig wasp for pollination. It is well suitable for growing in the UK, and good for pot growing. Yellow Autumn coloration.


Fig is a well known fruit, cultivated since ancient times and grows wild in dry and sunny areas. It is mostly cultivated around the world for its fruits but it is also a great architectural plant with very ornamental leaves, plus the foliage turns yellowish in the Autumn. After their fall, the fruits often remain on the bare branches. We have different leave forms, deeply lobed to slightly lobed. Figs can be found in continental climates with hot summers as far north as Hungary and Moravia, and can be harvested up to four times per year. Thousands of cultivars, most named, have been developed as human migration brought the fig to many places outside its natural range. Two crops of figs are potentially produced each year, but in UK conditions, it is safer to use varieties with one crop as the first crop would often be damaged by Spring frosts. 

Most common figs have all female flowers that do not need pollination; the fruit develops through parthenocarpic means, but there are varieties which requires the fig wasp for pollinisation (this insect usually cannot live in UK climate, this is why parthenocarpic varieties have to be used here to have fruits).

Please check our shop regularly as we will have different fruited varieties on offer soon.
