ITALIAN HONEY FIG, honey-sweet figs have soft-green skin and gorgeous golden-amber flesh and are good for fresh eating or dried. Large, lobed leaves are very attractive on this 8 to 12' feet tall and wide shrubby tree. These delicious figs bear two crops in warm gardens and one in cooler climates. A good choice for short season areas. Have a taste of ‘Italian Honey’ and you will be utterly seduced. This attractive and prolific cultivar is an enticing presence in a patio container. August brings a delectable deluge of yellow figs loaded with sweet, succulent amber flesh.
