Little Ruby Fig/ Gal Pot (Fall Ship)
Little Ruby ripens a substantial fall crop regularly in Western Washington and other cool summer areas where other varieties won't. It also sets an overwintering "abreba" crop. This dark red colored, sweet flavored fig has a compact growth habit making it ideal to grow in a pot.
Little Ruby is a unique variety and comes from near Olympia WA and was brought to us by Denny McGaughy.
Deny has tested the many fig varieties Raintree offers through the U.S. Germplasm Repository in Davis California. Many figs with different names are actually the same variety and Raintree is adjusting the names of its varieties to fit the results of the DNA testing. All fig growers owe a debt of gratitude to Denny for his important work.
