Fig Flower Essences
There are 2000 Fig varieties in the world. Forty-two of these are native to Australia. Figs grow as bushes but also as powerful trees. Amazingly, a single tree with great coverage can span over many hectares. Most tropical Fig varieties start their life as parasites. They strangle their host and slowly eat the dead tree. The best-known Fig (Ficus carica), originating from the Mediterranean, produces the delicious fruit.
The Fig tree is, without doubt, the most versatile of all plants. They can survive long droughts, heat and harsh sun. Given sufficient rain, they can also grow up to three metres in a year. Even frost and temperatures of minus 18 degrees Celsius will not kill the common Fig.
Fig blossoms are truly extraordinary. While most horticultural and gardening books take care to describe every flower, they leave out information about the Fig. Although considered a fruit, the fig is actually a flower that is inverted into itself. The seeds are drupes, or the real fruit. Figs are the only fruit to fully ripen and semi-dry on the tree. Depending on the variety of fig and climatic conditions, the Fig can bear fruit several times a year.
