The fig is mentioned in the Bible many times and is included in the biblical story of the Garden of Eden. In fact, it is a figure in the founding of quite a few great religions, and included in Greek mythological literature.

The Texas Everbearing Fig is one of the most popular figs available and for good reason. It's soft, sweet bell shaped fruit is a favorite in cooking, and it can survive at lower temperatures than other members of the genus Ficus (fig).

The fig's flesh is amber to pink with dark mahogany-purple skin, and is delicious for fresh eating as well as for jellies, jams, cookies, cakes and dried fruits.

They are also a healthy addition to any diet, and are a good source of magnesium, cooper, iron, calcium and potassium.

The attractive shrub to small tree has large, shiny 3 to 5-lobed leaves. It grows to 10 feet tall and up to 12 feet wide. Delicious fruit aside, this is a gorgeous landscape plant!

Figs are self-fruitful, unlike apples or pears, so only one fig is needed to produce fruit. Figs need full sun and well-drained soils to grow well. The pH should be between 5.5 to 8, and they grow best in USDA zones 7 through 11.

The Texas Everbearing Fig begins producing a light crop of figs in May, then bears more heavily in June through August. Figs should be left on the tree to ripen for the best flavor.

Protect your tree with bird netting or other bird deterrents because birds love fig nearly as much as we people do! Deer also love the sweet fleshy fruits.

She seems to be quite happy in her location. Can't wait till she has some figs, but I think that will take a few months.
Fig tree came nicely packaged and we followed planting directions and she settled in quite well.
Because of figgys successful tavels, we also bought a Loquat tree and a cocoa tree. The Loquat seems to be doing well, she came with leaves and a good potting, unfortunately the Cocoa tree came in a very small pot with very little soil and moisture, she was a dry stick and while we are trying, I am very unhappy with her condition. I have also bought a 4in1 apple tree that seems to be quite happy and a peach tree and a banana plant for my daughter in Texas.
Is there any replacement plan for dead trees??

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Everbearing 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 Everbearing Fig again after the transplant is complete.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
