Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey' is a vigorous, spreading deciduous shrub or small tree with large, deeply lobed, green leaves and purplish-brown fruits, green when they emerge, with pink flesh, sweet, delicious and rich in flavour. It is ready for harvesting in late summer or autumn. It crops abundantly and another small crop may appear in spring. Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey' is very easy to grow and grows best in organically rich, neutral, moist, well-drained soils. It prefers sunny positions, but can tolerate some shade. The best crop is achieved in full sun. It is resistant to frost but needs to be protected from harsh, winter winds. If grown in containers, it needs to be brought inside in cold winter climates. It is self-fertile, doesn’t need pollinators. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Fig 'Brown Turkey' is an attractive, ornamental tree, bearing large crops of excellent, delicious fruit that can be eaten fresh, dried, or for culinary purposes.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
