Flanders Fig Tree – A Taste of Tradition, A Touch of Elegance
Immerse yourself in the world of home gardening with our Flanders Fig Tree. Known for its traditionally cherished, robustly flavored fruits, this variety promises a delightful experience in every bite.
Our Flanders Fig Tree produces an abundant harvest of large, burgundy-colored figs that reflect a sense of elegance and taste. The inviting exterior gives way to a densely textured, amber-hued pulp, marked by its sweet, rich flavor. Ideal for enjoying fresh off the tree, these figs also lend themselves well to a variety of culinary creations, from preserves to baked goods.
Expect a substantial yield from mid to late summer, enriching your garden with its sweet, dark-colored bounty. Despite its generous harvest, the Flanders Fig Tree maintains a moderate growth habit, making it suitable for medium-sized gardens, container growth, or as a beautiful addition to your landscape.
The Flanders Fig Tree is a resilient variety, showing resistance to common fig diseases and pests. Being self-fertile, there’s no need for a second tree for cross-pollination – a single tree will ensure a plentiful harvest!
Beyond its fruitful yield, this tree makes for a visually captivating addition to your garden. Its lush, deeply lobed green leaves contrast against the dark-colored fruits, offering a visually pleasing tableau throughout the growing season.
Perfect for Fruitscaping™, introducing a touch of traditional flavor to your garden, or for the pure joy of harvesting and tasting your own figs, our Flanders Fig Tree is an excellent choice. Order today and look forward to the delight of tasting traditional, rich figs, fresh from your garden.

Fruitscaping™ with Fig Trees
Embrace the joy of Fruitscaping™ with our Fig Trees. Among the simplest and most rewarding fruiting plants to grow, figs are an excellent addition to any organic garden. Their inherent disease resistance and few pest issues can be managed easily without the need for harsh chemicals, ensuring a bountiful, eco-friendly harvest.
Our Fig trees exhibit a diverse palette of flavors, textures, and ripening seasons. Some varieties possess thin skins with succulent centers evoking the flavor of rich maple syrup – a delight when savored fresh from the tree. Other varieties offer a naturally sweet texture, perfect for drying or turning into delectable preserves.
With their compact growth habit, fig trees are perfect for integrating into the shrubbery border, adding an attractive contrast with their broad, deeply lobed leaves. Consider pairing these distinctive trees with the elegant pomegranate and the fine-textured blueberry bushes for a stunning visual mix. Complement this arrangement with a lush undergrowth of strawberries, creating a cycle of blooming flowers, ripening fruit, and vibrant fall colors.
The young fig tree’s smooth, flexible trunk lends itself to creative gardening techniques. Train it into an espalier for a living wall, or twist it into a striking specimen tree. If you’re dealing with limited space, lay the trunk flat against the ground, and watch as the vertical shoots transform into a natural, green hedge.
Fig trees are also well-suited to container gardening. The root restriction of a pot often encourages the tree to produce even more prolific crops. So, if you’re an urban gardener or short on garden space, our fig trees will prove a perfect fit.
Embrace the ease and joy of Fruitscaping™ with Fig Trees. Enjoy the journey from planting and care to the sweet reward of your homegrown figs.
