Ficus carica (Fig tree)
Category: Mediterranean plants
Origin: South-west Asia
Description: Ficus carica of the Moraceae family, one of the numerous species of the genus Ficus. It now grows spontaneously around the Mediterranean and in other regions of the world.
Of low size, more similar to that of a bush than to that of a tree (between 3-10 meters), especially when it emits rodrigones that support its branches. Undemanding as to the qualities of the land, its growth is slow in dry lands. It is not uncommon to see fairly developed shoots or feet growing on rocky outcrops or old walls.
