Variety description

The fig 'Bornholm' is a Danish variety that comes from the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm. It is characterised by its frost tolerance. After a few years, it can tolerate sub-zero temperatures down to -20°C. As with all figs, however, 'Bornholm' young plants should be given some winter protection during the first three years. However, if it gets too cold in the winter, figs will usually sprout again from the rootstock.

Like its relatives, the 'Bornholm' fig loves a sunny, sheltered location, for example against a house wall, where it grows up to 3 - 4 m tall. The advantage of a sheltered planting is that you can harvest ripe fruit until late autumn. In less good locations, the figs no longer ripen and are worthless because once picked they do not ripen again, unlike other fruits.
