We focus on plants that have not been cultivated in our climate before. We have great results because many of them are well adaptable to our continental conditions and do what they should – flourish, bloom, or set fruit. Fig trees belong among these originally forbidden taxons. There a good location is needed as well as a selected variety suitable for our zone. And if you meet both obligations you can enjoy sweet and tasty figs from your own garden every summer.

Peretta® is a Swiss addition to the group of hardy figs for zone 6. It produces greenish-brown, sweet fruit from mid August. They do not require pollination. Immature fruit and branches contain sap which can be an eye and lip-irritant. Palmate leaves are very ornamental – mid green and large, with deep, rounded lobes. Pruning is possible in spring, for stronger fruiting you can cut new branches after 3rd leaf in summer.

Fig plants need a sunny spot preferably at a south-facing wall where they can accumulate a lot of warmth and are sheltered in winter. Young plants survive approx. -15°C, older plants can take -20°C or even more with protection. In any case it is fully root-hardy i.e. it always re-sprouts from the ground level if branches are damaged by frost. It absolutely needs free-draining, preferably alkaline soil with some clay lower and plenty of humus-rich material.
