Each order of seeds contains 10 seeds.
The male parent is UCR 347-1, which is a green persistent caprifig.
The female parent is Hog Island Fig, a golden colored fig with a very ‘figgy’ taste and can ripen a dark brown when left on the tree. Hog Island fig is an early variety consistently ripening some of the first fruit at our farm and continuing to ripen crops through the first frost.
Pictures are of the parent varieties.
All fig seedlings are unique and may or may not inherit the traits of their parents. These controlled crosses give you the best chance of producing high quality new varieties, but do not guarantee it. See our article on growing fig seeds for more information. To learn more about the controlled cross process see our article on hand pollination.
