Growing fig at home

Fresh figs are expensive at our stores simply because they are too delicate to transport across the globe. Eating fig is almost a luxury here. Not only are they rarely available, they are usually not lusciously sweet.

Before my friend gave me his fig plant, I had never imagined they'll do so well in Singapore. The plant I have is just about 1.5 metre tall and it takes up very little space. It doesn't require any special attention or care. In less than a year, I have harvested about a dozen plump and delicious figs.

If you're a fig lover like me, you should start growing your own plant at home.
