Description
Also known as the Honey Fig, the Yellow Long Neck fig yields large round fruit with a long with thin, tender skin and sweet amber flesh. It is favored among fig lovers for its sweetness. The main crop of Yellow Long Neck produces a honey-type fig with green skin. It ripens fairly late but appears to be, by all accounts, a very cold-hardy tree. While like most honey figs it has issues in the rain, including spoilage and a loss of flavor, it still does fairly well in most gardens throughout the US. This large yellow fig was discovered at the San Diego Botanic Gardens. It’s a vigorous grower and prolific fruiter that makes an ideal plant for the home garden, and it can be grown in the ground or in a large container. It’s delicious when eaten fresh off the tree but can also be made into jam or dried. Grow in full sun for optimum fruiting. This tree is self pollinating and grows to a height of 4'-8' when mature. Hardy in zones 7-10.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

Plant fig trees in loamy soil and in a northern exposure. They need plenty of sunlight and room in order to grow and thrive. Fertilize once a year. Fig trees only require light pruning which should be done in late winter.
