We propagate fig trees in different sizes and many varieties, which are very suitable as a gift for birth, baptism, birthdays or as a tree of life (Celtic June 14-23).
SINCE THE FIRST FIG LEAF ...
... with which Eve covered her nakedness when she moved out of paradise, the fruit and leaf were symbols of female sexuality like no other tree, but also of excessive strength and self-confidence.
The fig leaf still stands for shame and eroticism today.
The fig fruit is a symbol for the female sex.
The sexually influenced symbolism of the fig also has negative traits.
Peddling figs is a popular expression in Vienna for
Prostitution, a philanderer is a fig trader.
Because of its great value as a food, the fig also acquired
symbolic importance for prosperity and fertility.
From mid-June to early November, 50 different fig varieties ripen in our glass house and in the open-air plantation.
The Feigenhof with a show and herb garden is Friday and Saturday
open to our guests.
THE HEALING POWER OF THE FIG
Bones & nerves
The fig prevents bones and nerve damage and has a high energy and active ingredient content.
The aneurine should be emphasized. It is of great importance for the metabolism and also for the function of the nerve tissue. In addition to high calcium, the fig also has a high phosphorus content.
The fig cures sluggishness. The high content of mostly indigestible pulp and
of fruit acids makes the fig one of the best stool-promoting, bile-flow stimulating and expectorant agents.
In the case of constipation, 150-250g figs are given daily in the morning on an empty stomach or as an evening meal.
The same amount is also required in the case of liver problems and gallstone diseases during the seizure-free period.
To dissolve the phlegm in bronchitis, you put crushed figs in an effective bronchial tea, of which you drink a hot cup several times a day. Eating fresh fruit pulp also has beneficial effects on the bronchi.
Externally, it is good for inflammation in the mouth area. The figs should be roasted and
you have to keep them in your mouth for a long time. It can even be effective for gingivitis and purulent teeth
and have a pain relieving effect.
Warts & scars
In southern countries they use the white milk that comes out when the leaves are broken off the branches,
as a wart remedy and to beautify scars.
