ℹ One of the best varieties for the Northwest, Desert King is very productive and reliable, producing abundant, yellowish-green figs with sweet and richly flavorful, strawberry colored flesh. Because it ripens in mid summer, Desert King is a great variety for gardeners in coastal, high elevation, and other cool regions. Because of its small mature size, it can easily be kept potted and moved to a frost free area in winter. Desert King also withstands fruit damaging late spring frosts better than any other variety we grow. We sometimes call this fig the Dessert King! Quality of the fruit is exceptional; melting texture, and rich taste reminiscent of mulberry and strawberry! Mulch and Protect in Winter.
