Visiting FIGSFARM At Simpang Pulai With My Friends.

This is my 3rd visit to the Fig Farm after my 1st visit in February this year. Then 1 month later, we stopped to visit on our way back from a trip to Cameron Highland but none of us bought anything. My friends (husband and wife) who heard me shared about growing fig trees were interested and suggested making a trip to visit the farm. We picked last Tuesday because it was a holiday for my friends. 

After breakfast, we started the drive to Simpang Pulai in my friend's car. I guessed we were the first customers as we were there quite early. The fig plants have grown so much since my 1st visit and there were many other types of plants on sale as well. Looks like the farm is expanding.

After some introductions of the fig plants by the boss, my friends chose 2 fig plants. One was the Australia fig and the other was the BTM6. I too bought one baby fig plant and according to the boss, it is the Purple Jordan. The 1st plant I bought on my 1st visit was a Brunswick Fig.

On the right is their calamansi plant, already with fruits hidden from view.
This is my Purple Jordan fig plant.
 I was looking for a calamansi plant and I found one at the fig farm.
 It was flowering and I hope to see fruits forming on the plant soon. 
 While at the farm, the boss plucked a ripe fig for us to taste.
It was of a light/pale yellowish colour. Taste wise, only a tinge of sweet.
 The fig fruit was broken into quarters and we shared it with another customer who was there with us. I can't remember which specie was this fig.

    1. Glad to know that you will be buying a house soon. For indoor plants, you will have to look for those that do not need much sunlight.

    1. I like dried figs too but I find them very sweet. So I prefer fresh figs, not so sweet. I hope the 2 fig plants will bear sweet figs.

  12. Hey Nancy, I am not sure I have ever had a fig in fruit form, I know I have had a fig cookie though. Not even sure a fig plant would grow in Tennessee. I will have to track a fig down somewhere and give it a try. Have a great day.

  13. Oh yummy. My father loved figs the very best. I used to get them for him every Christmas. He'd hide them because no one else was allowed to have them.

    Have a fabulous day, Nancy. ☺

  16. Boa tarde, as flores são lindas, mas o que mais me chamou atenção foi a figueira, na minha região existe muitas figueiras, muitas delas nascem selvaticamente nos campos, os figos são vermelhos escuros com um pouco de amarelo escuro por dentro, são doces como açúcar, os mesmos são aproveitados para fazer pão, compota, bolos, depois de secos são cheios de amêndoa e vai ao forno, são muito saborosos.

  24. I'm tempted by the fig plants! Do they grow big?

    Oh those wishbone flowers. I like them but they keep dying on me.

    1. If you grow them in pots, it will not grow very big. Do get some because they are easy to grow. Once the wishbone flowers were so precious but now they are growing all over my garden. Ha ha.
