Peters Honey

Description

A medium, very sweet, lemon yellow fig. Good tree for growing in a pot. Super delicious and tender yellow-green fruit has dark amber flavorful and sweet flesh. Native to Sicily it was brought to the northwest where it is popular by Peter Danna of Portland. Best to grow in a warm location on the south side of a wall, etc. in cooler maritime locations.

Brought from his native Sicily by the late Peter Danna of Portland, Peter's Honey is one of the best figs we have eaten. Peter's Honey bears good crops of light yellowish-green fruit with delectably tender and sweet, dark amber flesh. In the Northwest, Peter's Honey ripens well in warm city climates. In the country or in cooler areas, an ideal location is on the sunny side of a wall or fence.

Peter's Honey produces a good crop of small to medium sized, rounded, green to yellow figs with a wonderful honey-like, sweet white flesh and and deep amber pulp. The figs are superb fresh, dried, or preserved and have a small closed eye. Peter's Honey Fig has a dwarf habit suitable for container culture and may produce a breba crop.
