Kadota figs are large and oval-shaped, with a green or yellow-green skin and a pink or amber flesh that is sweet and juicy. They are a popular variety for eating fresh, as well as for use in baking, preserving, and other culinary applications. The figs have a skin that is easy to peel and a rich, sweet flavor that makes them a favorite among fig lovers.
Kadota fig trees are hardy and adaptable and can grow well in various climates, though they do require a long, warm growing season to produce a good crop of fruit. They are also known for their resistance to certain diseases, such as fig rust and fig mosaic virus.
Requires 100 hours of chilling. Please note: Figs are 2-3 feet in height when shipped. Please see below for further information on our fig varieties for sale.
