Ficus carica ‘Magnolia’ is a great performer in the Southeast. It has become very popular in Texas in the dooryard fruit market. This fig has brown skin with an amber colored pulp. 'Magnolia' has an open eye which can cause the fruit to sour quickly, so it is important to pick it just before it is ripe. This is an ideal fig for canning. 'Magnolia' will produce figs on current and last years growth.

 

Figs make a welcome addition to home container gardens and landscapes. They can be grown as a tree or pruned and grown as a bush. They fruit on the current year’s growth. This allows the plant to fruit even if the plant froze to the ground during winter months. If the plant is to be grown in cold climates it is recommend to be grown as a bush. These are all self pollinating varieties that will fruit in containers.
