Genus Description Ficus is a genus of about 800 species of mainly evergreen trees, shrubs, and woody climbers, usually found in moist forest in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. Some behave as stranglers, outgrowing the host tree and eventually killing it, often becoming massive, free­standing trees themselves. They are usually grown for their foliage, or for their edible fruits (rarely borne on container-grown plants). The alternate leaves are simple, or shallowly to deeply lobed. Minute, petalless flowers are contained in a hollowed-out, inflated stem tip (receptacle) borne in the leaf axils, which enlarges to form the fig fruit, produced sporadically throughout the year. The foliage may cause mild stomach upset if ingested; the sap may irritate skin or aggravate allergies. Ficus carica (the common fig) is a deciduous tree or large shrub with a spreading head, and rounded, 3- or 5-lobed leaves, 4-10in long, heart-shaped at the bases. Pear-shaped receptacles develop into single fruit, to 4in long, green when young, maturing to dark green, purple, or dark brown.
Care Tips
Cultivation Under glass, grow in soil-based potting mix, with added fine bark chips, in full or filtered light. During growth, water moderately and apply a high-nitrogen fertilizer every 4 weeks. Keep moist in winter. Outdoors, grow in humus-rich, leafy, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Support figs that have long, lax stems. Mulch annually. Do not prune mature Celeste trees heavily because this can reduce the crop.
Pests and Diseases Mealybugs, scale insects, spider mites, root knot nematodes, and thrips occur under most environmental conditions. Fungal and bacterial leaf spots, crown gall, twig dieback, and Southern blight are common
