Description

Trunk Size
The vast majority of our trees will ship with a 5/8” trunk diameter, however size may vary slightly based on availability during the season. If they vary, most are larger (3/4” or 1”), and rarely some are smaller (1/2”).

Trees Begin Shipping in late November!
Our trees ship on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as they come into stock in late November.

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.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.
