Had these for several years now. Produce liuke crazy early and late crops. We live in NY. We take it indoors in an uinheatd backroom for the winter. Gave a couple to our son in Florida and it has taken forever and still looks like its on its last legs. Finally have a few figs that formed in 2012 but never matured. We in NY on the other hand couldn't ask for a more productive delicious fig.
