Astronomical Value in a Great Fig Tree

In search of a medium-sized, fruit-bearing tree that can stand up to the elements? Then look no further than the Celestial Fig Tree. Highly productive, cold hardy and resistant to pests and diseases, this vigorous growing tree fits well in a variety of planting locations. Before long, a mass of thick greenery will quickly populate your tree. The Celestial's leaves are big, capable of growing up to a foot long. The medium-sized figs are great in number, due in part to their unique 'closed eye' feature. Like a built in defense mechanism it wards off the dried fruit beetle and protects against spoilage. The result is more delicious figs hanging from your tree with every harvest.

The Figs are Heavenly...and Healthy!

When the countless figs begin to emerge on your Celestial Fig Tree, the first thing you'll notice is their incredible color. The smooth and shiny outer skin glows a magnificent purplish bronze. Slice one open to reveal the glistening, pink-amber flesh. This is one fruit that tastes as delicious as it looks. Perhaps that's why enthusiasts refer to the Celestial as the 'sugar fig'. The rich flavor combined with its crunchy seeds and chewy texture makes the Celestial fig wonderful fresh off the tree and excellent for preserving. If the taste alone isn't enough to convince you, consider the health benefits of this amazing fruit. High in fiber and rich in potassium, figs are a nutritious snack that are believed to naturally help control blood pressure and assist in weight loss.

With all of these positive benefits, the Celestial Fig is a clear choice for your garden or landscape. Order yours today.

I'm so impressed! I got my fig tree at the end of March/beginning of April- it arrived very well-packaged with a little leaf bud on it. I transplanted it into a bigger pot, made sure it had a lot of light from a grow lamp, and it has a BUNCH of leaves on it now! I don't know if I'll get fruit this year (fingers crossed!), and I'm just so pleased with how it's doing! This site is definitely my go-to for high quality products.

Celestial Fig
When I received the fig tree, I put it in the dark in my garage and kept it moist. I live on the edge of cold weather and did not want to have the item frost bitten. After about 10 days when the threat of frost was over, I planted it in a nice place in my back yard and it is growing like crazy. Besides sprouting leaves, it has sprouted one fig. It is doing great and is beautiful. I am looking forward to bushels of figs!

Gorgeous Plant arrived well-packaged
A couple years ago I purchased a fig tree at a home improvement store. Fig leaves are beautiful but there were only a few and I did get a couple figs from it the first year. Figs are an indoor container plant in the mountains of western NY where we had a few -40 days last winter. All went well until we put it on the porch this spring. A wind storm beat it up. In grief I planted it in a sheltered area to recover over the summer and ordered this Celeste Fig: it is lush and has 8 baby figs already growing. I am amazed. I'm spoiled by FGT!

Happy with Figs
We ordered our Celeste fig in early spring of northern CA. The plant arrived in with no damage and no pests. We used the recommended planting mixes and our fig immediately put out new growth. We are now in mid summer. Our plant has lots of new branches, leaves and at least 15 little figs. We are very fond of our fig. We also ordered a second variety of fig around a month later. That fig was already leaved out when it arrived but has not gotten as large as our Celeste fig. We think moving the figs early in the spring, letting them get their roots developed after the transplant, and then putting out new branches and leaves might be better. Bottom line though is that both plants are doing well, have fig fruits and no pests.

Amazing!
The Celestial Fig deserves its name- a gift from heaven.
It's been growing like crazy and only a few months after planting, it already has figs. Hard to believe but true. Highly recommend this tree!

Growing nicely
My Celeste and Miss Figgy are both currently growing nicely. I am waiting to see how they do during the winter. I had two fig trees of a different variety (but both dwarfs) which were killed by a sudden frost while they were both fully leaved last winter so the Celeste and MIss Figgy are replacing them. All the trees were and are supposed to be hardy in zone 8. I do plan to cover these new ones with an insulating blanket during any frost however.

Only have had this tree for 6 monthes
I have only had this fig tree for 6 months. It is loaded with figs, but I will not know until they ripen if they will ripen before frost here in OK. Also, we had the wettest year so far on record, with flooding rains. It has survived this to set several figs.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Celeste Fig



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Celeste Fig.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Celeste Fig gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Celeste Fig again after the transplant is complete.

The brown turkey fig that was on my property when I bought it was not doing well. Decided to replace it with this variety in hopes that it would do better.

My mom loves to eat avocado and figs, she's turning 70 years old Aug. 13th and these are my family's gift to her. Her health is declining a bit due to some health issues so praying these will put smiles on her face. Thanks in advance for gifting her with blooming and beautiful trees hoping there's fruits already, I read those comments and praying for trees already have fruits on them to make my Mom very happy. God bless you and all your staff for everything that you do.

Celeste is listed by many sources as being one of the top ten most delicious fig varieties. I figure if so many people are including it, it must be good! I'm also a fan of getting fruits with anti-cancer properties!

I have seen another celeste fig growing nearby. It's a shorter tree than the brown turkey ( how would get the fruit off a 20' tree?)

i love figs but sometime is hard to find them at stores here. I live in midwest so we can't grow them here but now i am moving south to zone 8. here is my chance.
josephine d on Dec 3, 2015
Nice variety and the figs are sweet! I have already tried several from my tree. The close eye is a benefit so you don't get any bugs in the fruit.
Patricia P on Nov 3, 2015
Though we picked the Celeste Fig in tandem with the Little Miss Figgy Tree because we wanted one to go in the garden and one in a container, we still wanted the garden tree to be a moderate size. I'm a little worried if we ever have a really cold winter here in MD, but even if we lose the Celeste, we'll still have Little Miss Figgy safe in the sun room !
Phyllis J on Oct 17, 2015
My parents like the fruits very much.

Well I know this tree grows in Central Florida where I live now. In fact I have seen these trees grow and bear fruit all the way south to Miami, FL. So I wanted to have a specimen for my garden.

is the celestial fig self pollenating?
betty a on Sep 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I believe the Celestial fig is self-pollinating! It doesn't hurt though, if your fig is in a container, to put it outside in the warmer months to let the insects get at it, just to help it along a little.
how many years before figs are ripe

does the tree come with fig buds?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine did not arrive with buds, but developed them not long after planted. I'm looking at figs already, several months after I put the tree in the ground. The tree is still small, but has lots of figs.
How tall does it indoors in container?
Marta M on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Planting it in a container will stunt its growth some. You can prune it to to your desired height.
How well do they do in Sarasota Fl.34232?
Emanuel K on Nov 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Well mine is growing well in zone 9b and I am just a little bit north east of you in Florida. When I was a boy in South Florida (Miami) my neighbor had one of these growing in his yard. The thing was a very vigorous grower so I don't think you need to worry. Also, the soil in South Florida is notoriously poor and yet these trees do well in it for some reason.
is it self pollinating?
jonsie on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This particular breed of fig tree is self-pollinating! If they needed another fig, they'd tell you in the description. If you have a potted fig, make sure you put it outside in the warmer weather so that the insects can get to it, just to help it out a bit. Put netting over it, too, when you get fruit, as birds love to eat the figs.
I have poor soil in my yard. What do I need to do to grow a healthy fig tree?
Ann T on Jun 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fig trees can tolerate a huge variety of poor soils, but you can mix some potting mix in with your natural soil before planting your tree. After a year of growth give your tree some well balanced slow release fertilizer like formula 10-10-10.
My daughters bought me a celestial fig tree for mother's day. It hasn't arrived yet but I am a little nervous about planting it. I live in South Carolina and it's mid-May and the weather is already warming - high 80s low 90s. Is it safe to plant when the weather is so warm? Summers are brutally hot here. I have always wanted a fig tree and since it's a gift I don't want to kill it. Thanks
susan m on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Susan: You have two choices. Plant it! I do not think you will have a problem. It is a tough tree. Or: you can transplant it into a large tub and keep it in the shade until September when the weather cools down a little. I kept mine moist and in the garage until the threat of frost passed and then planted it and it is doing fine. I counted 11 figs on it! Good luck. Maurice (Southern California desert)
I live in Sonoma, CA. When is the best time for me to plant this tree?
Saralynn R on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure
Don't think it matters as long as you water it enough in the beginning
What time of year does the celestial fig bear fruit? I am in zone 11
towerbac t on Mar 28, 2016

I live in TN where most soils are clay and very hard to work with. What can I add to the soil to plant a fig tree, hydrangeas and flowering trees?
