A guide to choosing the right size

For best results plant into a pit or grow in a large container to restrict root growth. It is the small pea-sized embryo figs formed in the autumn, that over-winter to produce a crop of figs the following August/September. Any figs that are larger than this, will not ripen and should be removed in November.

Quite small but healthy

Lovely tree with a few little figs on already. Look forward to the harvest the year after next.

I bought a 10L Brown Turkey Standard in July 2014. Beautiful thing, though obviously no fruit that year. It’s in a large pot on a sun-trap patio in Suffolk and this year has produced more than 50 fat and luscious figs! Most rewarding thing I've ever grown! Thanks Blackmoor

Nice fig tree, very well packed and arrived in record time, Thanks.

I have been growing this successfully in a pot on the patio for two years, now. It has fruited both years, and the fruit is delicious.

I bought Brown Turkey some years ago. Now it is 10 feet high on an East facing wall of our house in Stockport. Not only has it survived some bad Winters but it seems to enjoy its location and produces a quantity of figs every year. Last year (2015) the crop was big enough to make 10 jars of delicious fig and mango jam. this is a winner

I ordered two 10l Brown Turkey Fig trees which arrived today after putting in the order three days ago. The fig trees are just fantastic, really healthy and well pruned with a number of side branches. The packaging of the trees was outstanding, no damage at all. I will definitely be buying more fruit trees from Blackmoor. The trees, packaging and speed of delivery are all amazing.

As always from Blackmoor's, a very healthy tree (complete with a few figs). I have not grown figs before, so I look forward to seeing this one develop. They also included a leaflet on planting, which is a useful reminder that figs need to have their root growth restricted.

Fast delivery and a fabulous, very healthy looking tree. Easy to follow instructions on planting - can't wait to get (hopefully) fruits net year! Great, helpful chat too!

Excellent healthy tree delivered speedily and very well packaged. Superb service as usual.

13 Dec 14 | Claire

Brilliant tree. Have had in excess of 20 figs from it per year over the last two years, even though it is outside in North Yorkshire all year round (in a fig pit beside a sunny fence). No bother to grow and the birds, so far, have ignored it. Fig flavour is superior to anything I have ever bought in a shop in the uk.

Ordered a 3 litre tree and it looks healthy. Looking forward to eating the figs.

15 Aug 14 | Simon Messenger

I ordered one of these as a gift a couple of days ago and have been really pleased with the service. After choosing standard delivery initially, I called customer services to ask if it could be expedited, which they were happy to do at no extra cost. The plant arrived on the chosen day and by all accounts is a healthy looking specimen. Highly recommend this product and company.

Purchased a 3 litre plant back in 2007. Just thought I would leave some feedback. It started to fruit the year after I planted in and has produced a great crop of fantastic Figs every year since. Great variety

Received my standard Brown Turkey, absoloutly fantastic condition. Sat in the conservatory enjoying the sunshine, you can practically see the leaves unfurling. Had a real battle with the packaging but that's a compliment as it was so well wrapped up took me ages to get it out. Thanks again Blackmoor. Mmm what next.!!

21 Oct 13 | J Haddon

Very healthy plant delivered and established well in a pot in our conservatory. Already baby figs appearing ...so next year....look forward to fresh figs. Thanks for the excellent quality plant and great service!

Thanks for another batch of plants received in perfect condition wish other suppliers could follow your example and make professional gardeners lives a bit easier Thanks Russell

I have used you every winter for the last few years - keep adding to my fruit collection. Had used another fruit producer prior to that and was disappointed with their service. Never been disappointed with blackmoor service or the quality of the fruit trees/bushes.

Lovely plant recieved today, Many thanks

2 Jan 13 | Peter

One of the best Figs I have ever tasted

3 Dec 12 | Chris Luckman
