Fig Trees

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Our trees will come to you topped off at approx. 3 ft in height to put the tree’s stored energy first into root development vs. foliage production.

When placing your orders for potted tree/plants, please be aware that AS SOON as the potted tree/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship most potted tree/plants when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our potted tree/plants in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.

ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS

When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the potted tree/plants from their shipping box, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.

About Fig Trees

Sub-tropical fruit and drought tolerant. The sweetest develop when the daytime temperature regularly exceeds 95°F. Thrives in most soil types, as long as it's well-drained. Mature trees are hardy to 15°F. Will re-grow from roots if winter-killed. Grows 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 2½') in pots to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old and should begin to fruit in same year you plant them.

Selecting the Perfect Tree

For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating)? Enjoy!

All our dormant trees and berries come with a limited replacement guarantee.
