Details

Fig - Brown Turkey 
A very popular and widely grown vigorous fig tree that produces classic all-purpose fruit in March/April.  Usually takes around 3-4 years for trees to start bearing heavily. 

Pollination
Not required for the plant to produce fruit.

Position
Best grown in full sun in free draining soil rich in organic matter. Fruit trees need at least 6 hours full sun.

Spacing
Leave 3-4m between trees

Planting
Dig a hole that is at least twice as deep and twice as wide as the pot that your tree came in. In heavier soils digging a slightly deeper hole is recommended. Backfill your hole and mix in compost, sheep pellets, and either Kings 24+ or Nature's Organic Fertiliser.
In heavier soils break up the sides of your hole as you backfill as smooth sides to the hole can cause it to act like a bucket and fill up with water. Plant the tree level with the ground, or in heavier soils, into a slight mound to improve drainage.

Feeding
Use Kings Slow Release Fruit and Citrus Fertiliser, or for a natural option feed with sheep pellets and Ocean Grow.
