Quick Overview:

‘MAJOAM’, sold under the trade name of LITTLE MISS FIGGY, was discovered by Michael Nobles in September 2010. It was growing as a naturally occurring branch mutation of Ficus `Violette de Bordeaux` in a container at his nursery in Ridgeville, South Carolina. It is a miniature fig with a compact, dwarf habit and deeply lobed, dark blue-green leaves. It has dark purple fruits with smooth, amber flesh that are produced abundantly along the branches. It grows just 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, making it suitable to grow in containers or in small gardens

Description

Figs are best grown in USDA Zones 8-10 in organically rich, moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Figs may be grown in protected locations in USDA Zones 6 and 7 with root mulch, but plants will usually show significant die back in cold winters. When temperatures in winter dip below 15 degrees F., consider additional protection for outdoor plants to the extent possible (e.g., clear plastic sheets or frames).
