  • Ficus Auriculata

    Found a beautiful tree at the Huntington Gardens. The figs are not ripe yet, will have to visit in a month or two to check on them.
    The leaves are huge and glossy.

    A few interesting facts found online:

    The fruits are edible and are used to make jams, juices and curries in India.
    Ficus Auriculata is one of the more delicious figs. The small round green figs are red inside. The flowers are pink and appear in mid-Spring.
    The tree is not particular in what type of soil it is potted as long as it is a well draining mix. It performs best in full sun in a wind protected area. Requires consistently moist soil; do not let dry out between waterings.

    So, if a Ficus Carica is grafted onto a Ficus Auriculata, will it be more high-moisture tolerant? How about a FMV?

    Enjoy!
