Fig carica ‘Black Genoa’

Fig carica ‘Black Genoa’

With delicious fruit and striking foliage, Fig carica ‘Black Genoa’ makes a wonderful landscape addition. The juvenile, deeply lobed leaves of Fig carica ‘Black Genoa’ immerge a bright green, and as they broaden, they darken and develop a sandpaper like texture. The tree itself grows to 4m in height and 3m wide. Ficus flowers occur inside the stem, so fruits develop straight out of the branch, twice in a season, extending the cropping time. When ripe fruits are a deep purple colour.
