I ate fresh figs for the first time in my life in Yugoslavia. we camped under a
tree and stood on the car to pick figs until I couldnt eat any more.
I have been determined to grow my own fresh figs. without much result ... until
I have a celeste fig in a large container. move it into my heated garage over
winter, back out to the back yard in spring. I finally got a ripe fig, smaller
a large marble. the first one went to DH who "thinks" a fig tastes like those
up shriveled things in bag. he went wild. I got the second one. heaven.
these figs arent large. is that due to the "tree" being rather small or the
fig? do fig trees drop leaves due to temp or photo period?

go to www.onegreenworld.com and order a hardy fig for your zone. They fruit
on new wood. Mine lives outside. I started it from a rooted branch nine
years ago that my friend, Mary Emma gave me when we unwrapped her fig tree
of the snow fence filled with leaves to protect it from winter. The lower
branches had rooted in the mulch of leaves thru winter and early spring.
I've not mulched mine in seven years. And I have more figs than I can eat
