Well-known Ficus carica Brown Turkey is easy to grow and produces prolific crops of large, sweet figs. The figs appear as green in the spring but mature to a purple-brown, with deep red flesh. It is self fertile, so you only need one plant. A recipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, for all round excellence in the garden.


Fully hardy, Ficus carica Brown Turkey is best grown fan-trained on wires, against a south-facing wall or fence in a sheltered location. Grow in a container and restrict the roots to promote fruit production.

  • Fruits: August - September
  • Hardy
  • All well drained soil types
  • South or East aspect
  • Full sun
  • Sheltered
  • Remove older branches in March.
  • The fruits will be ready from August to September but a second crop often develops in late summer and, if protected, these fruits will ripen during the following summer.
