Nevertheless, of course I bought it because I want figs!
More photos and the rest of the story below. . .Since I have no experience with fig trees I read up on their growing cycle and what to expect (or let’s say hope for!). The literature says, 2 growing cycles per season, preceded by flowering. I inspected the fig tree (called Figo) for flowers, but nothing to be seen.
This morning I checked again, and almost jumped in delight and surprise: a tiny fig is growing!!! :-)
