Hunt Fig

Description
These figs may be smaller than many varieties, but they really pack a flavor punch. They are an outstanding variety for fresh eating. Very cold tolerant, Hunt is also well adapted to the humid climate of the Southeastern states. Like all figs, this one tastes best when ripened on the tree, only harvested right before you are ready to eat. A vigorous grower bearing plenty of fruit, it requires pruning only in the first three years. After it is established in the landscape, no pruning is required. Ficus carica 'Hunt'

  • PruningDo not require regular pruning once established. Prune figs trees annually during the first three growing seasons to establish desired shape. Best to prune immediately after the main crop is harvested in early fall.
  • Unique CharactersticsWeeks: Figs thrive on high heat and need a long period of high temperatures to be productive. No wonder they are a traditional Southern favorite. In the Deep South, some varieties will produce 2 crops, one in June/July off of old wood and one in July to October on current year's wood. Most figs grown in the Southeast develop a bush-like habit rather than a tree form due to cold injury. So best success is achieved with varieties that produce figs on current year growth. All varieties listed here produce a crop on current year growth. Figs must ripen on the tree/bush, and the best tasting varieties are quite perishable, which is why you should grow them at home! Nothing can compare to the rich, sweet flavor of fresh-picked figs! If you think you don't like figs, you've probably never had one fresh from the tree! Happily, while deer will eat figs, they don't seem to really like them. Hunt Figs have an interesting sweet flavor that is excellent for fresh use. Smaller fig size than others, but is a reliable producer of large crops because it is very cold tolerant. Amber colored flesh has fewer seeds than others. Well adapted to humid, rainy areas of Southeastern states.
