This may be a short tree or a shrub, up to 4m tall. It has beautiful, rough, variegated leaves that are the main atractive of this plant. They can be more green or more white, depending on the light it gets, and in both cases you can see at least two tones of green. It likes full sun, by the way, and well drained organic soil, plus regular waterings.

The young figs are green with white or yellowish irregular stripes that turn into interesting velvet purple coloured figs *I donīt know if this one is edible, I wouldnīt try it*. A good fig tree for those who donīt have much spare room for large trees.
