Figs

brown turkey figWe grow and sell several fig varieties that do well in most southern climates, producing two crops in a single season. If you live in a cooler southern climate (we consider ourselves cool in climate zone 7A), then we recommend that figs be planted where they can be protected from cold winter temperatures and black violette figwinds. In this case, plant them on the southern or eastern exposures, near or against a protective structure such as a house, barn, or shed. green figFigs like well drained soils and extra lime at their bases usually helps by making soils less acidic.

Fig Prices:

One year old, 3 foot tall fig "tree" $16/each (no quantity discounts)
