Figs

Fig trees are easy to grow in warm climates. They are not particular about soil and are just as happy in a large container as they are in the ground. They are quite handsome in the garden with their large tropical foliage and gnarled, gray trunks. They fruit best when given minimal fertilizer. High nitrogen foods tend to make them all leaf and no fruit. We like the following varieties for Bay Area gardens.

  • Mission Fig
  • Brown Turkey Fig
  • Black Jack Fig
