Brunswick is a fig variety that is hardy enough to grow in the UK. As for all figs in the British Isles, it is best grown with restricted roots, in a container that can be buried in the ground. It should be grown in a sheltered and sunny position, ideally against a south-facing wall. Brunswick is self-fertile – no pollinator is required. The fruit is very large with purple-flushed green skin, pinkish flesh and sweet flavour. The tree may produce two crops per year in a hot summer, though a single crop is normal. It is a reliable cropper in any case.
