What are the pros? Fruit in first year!
What are the cons? Questioned death early on
These plants took quite a while to take to the pots on initial transplant. The leaves that arrived on the plants browned and fell off leaving me wondering if they died. I kept watering, and finally after moving outside, they took off. Once they started growing, I transferred to very large planters. When doing this, I realized how much energy they had been expending on the root system- didn't grow much above ground, but the root system was massive upon transplant and then didn't stop growing once moved into the large clay pots. Trees grew well, 3.5-4' in first year and had 8-10 small, yet tasty figs each. Tree and branches turned from green to wooded over by late fall. Moved the pots to garage for winter. I'm hoping that with another good year, I'll test one leaving outside all winter next year.
