Fig - Brown Turkey, Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey', has the longest ripening season of the recommended varieties. The fruit is medium to large, with a reddish-brown skin tinged with purple. The pulp is reddish-pink and of good quality. It is subject to cracking in wet weather and has a larger eye than Celeste and hence will sour more quickly. The fruit is excellent for making home preserves. Plentiful sunlight is a key to maximizing fruit production. Choose an area that is in the sun most or all of the day.

Figs grow extremely well along the Texas Gulf Coast. However, thetrees require cold protection in the far northern and western areas and supplemental irrigation in the state's drier areas. The fig fruit is unique. Unlike most fruit in which the edible structure is matured ovary tissue, the fig's edible structure is actually stem tissue. The fig fruit is an inverted flower with both the male and female flower parts enclosed in stem tissue. Additional plants, garden tools and garden decore can be searched within our online store.">
