Sub-tropical, drought tolerant fruit tree. Figs are possibly the very first domesticated fruit. There is evidence of fig cultivation as early as 4,000 B.C. The sweetest develop when the daytime temperature regularly exceeds 95°F. Figs thrive in most soil types, as long as well-drained and will fruit in a variety of climates. Mature trees are hardy to 15°F. Will re-grow from roots if winter-killed. Trees grow to 25' tall and 40' wide if not pruned. Figs need warm soil for their roots to start growing. Figs do not like to be planted as bare-roots and are difficult to establish, so we sell these No. 1 size trees (2’ to 3’) in pots to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old and should begin to fruit in same year you plant them.

Customer Reviews


I planted this in a pot two seasons ago. Nothing the first summer, and this summer I have about 8 small figs. The first one ripened, and oh my. It was not only the most delicious fig I've tasted, but perhaps the most delicious piece of fruit I've ever tasted. It tasted like old English roses and violets and sugar and berries. I can't wait for the rest to ripen. Worth the wait.....

Healthy fig trees

I ordered 5 fig trees. different varieties. They all arrived in great shape. The Trees were very healthy and well taken care of. The root system in the pot was great and I am sure they will establish well in the 3 gallon contaner I up-potted. Grow Organics support staff was very personable and helped with all the questions I had. Great choice and I am sure I will go back for more.
