Go figure: Forbidden Figs bring a fortune for the whole year
A Queensland family business has created a revolutionary way of growing delicious tasty figs all year round.
The story of the Emerick fig business has been reported in Rural Press publications over the past week.
The Emerick family of Bundaberg is using hothouse production to grow indoor figs that are harvested during the winter months from May to November.
The deciduous trees are reportedly pruned before they enter their winter dormancy, and yield the family’s ‘Forbidden Figs’ in the colder months.
The Emerick business also grows summer-autumn outdoor fig trees, harvesting from its 10,000 fig trees in the conventional (December to May) season.
