Ficus Carica Little Ruby

  • Denny McGaughy

‘Little Ruby’ is ever-so aptly named!
A dwarf fig that is so petite, it is often used for bonsai. Good for containers and in-ground, ‘Little Ruby’ produces an early crop of medium sized, sweet red figs with strawberry colored flesh. The yield is usually heavy compared to the size of the tree. The large leaves give this plant a tropical feel, and if left unpruned, can be a very bold statement.
Best in full sun & well drained soil
Pollinator friendly.
Relatively wildlife & drought resistant once established.
