Dalmatie is a popular green-fruited fig. The fruits are large, with a well-regarded flavour.

How to grow

As with all figs, plant in full sun in a sheltered spot. If planting in the ground, restrict the roots with paving slabs. Alternatively plant in a large container.

Dalmatie is less vigorous than most figs.
