This fig certainly has Panache! A genuinely striped Fig, often called Tiger Fig, it grows and fruits well here in the UK too, especially in warmer Summers - now that is different.
Grow like all Figs in a sunny, well-drained spot, perhaps best in a pot against a sunny, South facing wall, critically with root restriction, so keep in a smaller pot than you may think. 'Panache' is self-fertile, and will produce late season fruits in late August, or September. Cropping is improved by growing in a conservatory or greenhouse in Summer, as it is a late maturer, and this gets bigger and more reliable crops.
Delicious eaten fresh, when it's juicy red, very sweet flesh contrasts with the variegated yellows, striped with lime green skin. Most unusual.
Supplied as a 2 year old plant as a single stem in a 9cm pot, c. 60-70cm tall.
