The Sexy Fruit of the Gods

Figs have deep roots in ancient civilizations that revered this bountiful tree. The Greeks thought figs to be sacred and associated them with love and fertility; and Romans believed figs were a gift from the god of intoxication, Bacchus.

Most figs are balmy Mediterranean varieties, but the Brown Turkey Fig is the exception. This cold-hardy type features the finest qualities of a traditional fig, but it endures winters that would devastate most other fig trees.

For those of you enamored of home fruit production, figs will delight you with two crops of fruit per year. The first crop is small (referred to as the breba crop) and arrives in late spring or early summer. Later, your main harvest ripens in early fall and is considerably larger.

The fruit is medium to large in size, and sports a reddish-brown skin tinted with a deep purple hue. The meat of the fruit is a deep pinkish-red and of excellent quality when it comes to the various fig varietals.

Hint: Never pick your figs green, and always let them ripen fully on the tree before picking for the sweetest and richest flavor.

Fig fruit contains a higher quantity of fiber than any other dried or fresh fruit you can buy. They are super healthy and are a great source of calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper and iron. There is even some evidence that figs are beneficial in defending against breast and colon cancer.

Dried for a sweet holiday snack, eaten fresh off the tree or cooked and canned as delicious fig preserves, this fruit should not be missed. A tantalizing and easy appetizer can be made by wrapping a piece of prosciutto around a fig with a slice of blue cheese on top.

The Brown Turkey Fig can be considered either a small tree or a multi-stemmed shrub (referred to as a 'trub') decided only by the way you choose to train it.

The Turkey Fig is as versatile as it is attractive. With a mature height of anywhere from 10-25 feet, this plant is as comfortable in a container as it is in the garden. Just remember, this goddess worships the sun and performs best when positioned to enjoy a full day's worth or sunny rays.

Brown Turkey Fig sports beautiful deep green leaves that are large and a bit bristly on both sides and provide interesting texture in the landscape.

Take a history lesson from the ancient gods and order your Brown Turkey Fig today!


After a long humid summer, the leaves of our figs may be exhibiting some signs of rust and possibly other stress. These spots are cosmetic and any underlying cause would have been treated before it left our facility. Plant your fig as normal, the plant will go dormant soon and the leaves that appear next season will be green and healthy.




Brown Turkey Fig Pollination

Brown Turkey Fig are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Brown Turkey Fig will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Received fig tree 27 inches. Can see were it was pruned twice to make it branch out. In 2 months it is 31 inches high and 27 inches wide. It has 9 branches with 8 figs on it. Came in its own pot with a very well developed roots.

My little brown turkey fig arrived a couple of months ago. He was short with a few leaves. Planted him within the first couple days and he is currently vibrant and flourishing!! Even though he's not much taller than when I got him, he is full of foliage and even has several figs! Ordered another today and one for my neighbor. I have been extremely satisfied with all the trees I've purchased from FGT and I'm sure I'll be buying more

Received my fig in EXCELLENT condition today. Hard to believe that it's been in a box for several days. Healthiest fig tree I've seen and shopped around before deciding to go with Fast-Growing-Trees.com. Paid a little more but got a SUPERIOR quality tree. It arrived with 2 dozen figs on it. I'll have fruit this year! Can't wait . . .

we ordered a Brown Turkey fig in Febuary and have kept it inside till late March. We moved it outside after hard freeze fears were mostly gone. It has set leaves and bloomed and no one can believe that it is not several years old. It looks great and I look forward to eating figs. Very Happy.

Northeast Experience
I received the fig tree in late summer. Transplanted it immediately, and placed it in a sunny outdoor location.
Carefully watered regularly. (It came in good condition, and there were small figs on it when it arrived.)

As the weather got colder, I moved it indoors to a sunny, south-facing, unheated porch. Finally, I moved it inside to a southerly window, but the shock and diminished sunlight caused it to loose all of its leaves. With the help of a grow light and the sun, we now have full replacement of the leaves, and even one fig.

As the days get longer, I expect more fruit.

Great Fig Tree
I received the 3-gallon fig tree in August 2014. It came large and healthy. I am growing this tree on my patio in a huge container. Within a few weeks of receiving it, I had about 3-4 figs that ripened. I ate 2 very sweet figs and so did the birds. :) I purchased some net fabric from the fabric store and put on it to keep the birds off. I have not seen any figs since then; however, the tree is still growing & a healthy green color. Love it. Can't wait until the spring to see more figs ripen to eat.

...nearly 9 months later...
I wanted to allow some time to go by to give my tree a 'chance' as I live in northeastern Pennsylvania and I didn't quite know what to expect. I received what I thought was a small tree...it came in a 3-gallon container. I didn't put this plant in the ground. I wanted a 'container fig' as I had planned to move it indoors during the winter months. Initially it grew quickly. I am guessing it would have continued to grow quickly if I had planted it in the ground. The tree even produced more than a dozen figs toward the end of the summer. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the fig tree that I recently ordered that should arrive to my home next March.

I was a little concerned when my tree arrived, the leaves looked flattened out and it was tilting. After planting and watering and giving it a few weeks, it straightened up, the leaves looked healthy and it grew like a rocket, and the first fig appeared! Can't wait til it is big enough to eat!

One tough tree!
It survived severe newbie conditions with help from some online friends, one tough tree for sure! What I dislike are the tiny web worms that hatched out from underneath one of the leaves from a brown egg mass a couple of days after I got it. Was able to kill them but not before they did some leaf damage. Tiny little buggars. Overall it is a good recovering and strong growing tree that has even provided a few rooted cuttings.

I'm putting the brown turkey fig in a 20 gallon pot how do you prune it to not get more than 8ft tall?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2014

I have a Brown Turkey Fig that is several years old. We live in North Dallas. It has always had two crops & lots of leaves. However this year leaves are very sparse & no fruit. Could this be cold/frost damage? I do not see any pests or mold.

i am starting late but i plan to purchase Fig trees in the middle of the summer of this year.
is that a good idea? which is a better timing.
am a novice with anything to do with planting.
but I learned from a seminar,Humans must sorround thyself
where everything is food or can be shared as food
that are healthy.
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I'm the best person to answer this. I purchased my fig in January and kept it in my garage to keep it from the winter wind and snow. It's dormant so it's not a problem as long as you keep the tree moist. I moved it to a big pot while it was still dormant in April. It has now sprouted many new leaves. Not sure if it will actually produce figs this year, but I'm hoping. Depending on where you are located, planting in June shouldn't be an issue, just keep the tree well watered. Your tree may even arrive with leaves already sprouting. I've ordered other plants from this company and they are well packed and properly pruned. The plants may look a little war weary from shipping, but they are healthy and will thrive, mine have doubled in size from last year.
Caring for a brown turkey fig in spring?
Barbara P on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi there. The information given below is based on an article in last years organic gardening magazine and my sewing machine repair guy which is also an organic farmer that has a fig tree and I also own a fig tree.

Spring care for your brown turkey fig; it depends on what climate (or zone) you live in and if it is potted or planted in the ground. If planted in the ground, they do suggest planting it on a south facing wall. If planted where it freezes, it's recommended that you cover the tree with insulation to protect from frost. So, in the spring, you wouldn't uncover until there isn't any more frost. We have our brown turkey fig tree a large
pot and have it indoors until the last frost of the season and then move the tree to our outdoor deck. I would highly suggest a water ph soil measurer. It is suggested that the soil is kept around 2. In the spring, beautiful fig leaves will start forming, getting ready to potentially fruit! The branches also grow drastically if taken care of properly.

In the winter months, the tree goes dormant and sometimes even loosing all the branches down to the roots. It said not to be alarmed if the tree does that. While indoors this winter, it lost all leaves which is normal. We probably water the tree in the winter a total of about 2-3 times.

I hope this helps!
Good luck!
I would like a Fig Tree to grow indoors; which would be the best one to buy?
Ruby M. on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend growing a fig tree indoors, due to the needed chill hours.
I know it is best to plant a fig tree in the fall. If I buy it now and put it in a larger container when it arrives would it "shock" it to then plant it in the Fall?
Ann T on Jun 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is best to transplant the tree as soon as possible. If you transplant it into a container after receiving it may be best to leave it in the container for awhile and maybe plant in the spring. This will be less stress on the tree. We also offer the option to delay shipping until Fall, if that would be more preferable.

what climate zones will the fig survive in?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I live in South Texas, and purchased the Brown Turkey Fig plant over a year ago. I have it planted in a clay pot on my back porch. I was able to harvest approximately 100 figs. The figs were not large at first but after the tree was more established the fruit started getting bigger. Very Happy so far.
is it true or false? that we should not plant fig tree close to house. because root might go around water pipe?
rose b on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Roots of a fig tree are very invasive but are very shallow roots so I doubt they would go into a sewer line since most sewer lines are at least 4 -5 feet down. By invasive I mean they can interfere with other plants in the same area . Ususaaly it's best to plant fig trees in a barrel or large container. I'd plant it in the ground plant away from your house . You can keep it trimmed to a smaller size and this also effects the root structure. If you are concerned. You can dig down and put brick walls a few feet out from you fig and that will contain the roots yet the fig will generally establish enough roots to be productive. By the way the figs are delicious. Last year I had so many I made a fig spread that is great on bread. Hope this helps. Roger

HAinATL on Sep 4, 2017
We live in Carson city Nevada will it survive here?
papaw on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Maryland, but in the map is zone 7 up there. We've had some very cold winters and I thought I lost it. We had mulched it. The first year it looked just leggy, but this year is bushy and so healthy. I think it may grow there if you cover with mulch for the cold season. Good luck. There is a variety named Chicago which they say withstands cold better. About the heat I wouldn't worry. It loves it.
I live in long island NY , when is the best time to plant a fig tree? Thank you.
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Spring would be the best time. In the winter the tree needs to be wrapped or taken inside so I would definitely wait until the spring. The winter on Long Island can be rough for fig trees but I have found that even if they don't make it through the winter they typically grow back (and grow back even bigger!) I hope this helps!
Do you need two trees to polinate?
Linda M on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Linda, No, you do not need two trees. We have had our tree for a couple of years and have fruit twice per year--spring and fall. The tree loses its leaves in the winter and new growth begins when the warmer weather arrives. Hope this helps. John

Tree is potted in DFW, Tx area, gets sun most of day. Leaves are turning yellow and then brown and dying. What could be cause?
CGottlieb on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my limited experience, it seems yellow leaves usually mean lack of nutrients, water or sun; however brown often means disease. There are articles online that explain it. Just look up fig tree diseases. Good luck.
My fig tree not growing what can I do to growing faster, Thanks?
Pedro P on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Add some pelletized garden limestone and lots of composted manure to the surface so it waters in. Mulch with crushed oyster shell to reflect light and help retain moisture. If you have fish parts you can bury it in a hole next to your tree. Figs like well drained soil but do require quite a lot of water while hot months.
Is this evergreen?
Denis A on Nov 11, 2015

Help! Got this tree 3 weeks ago. Leaves were sturdy but now are dying, despite watering. Is this natural in Fall weather? Should I bring the tree (still in the original container) inside the house? I live in
Dallas (zone 8). Thanks!!
MW in Dallas on Oct 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Well, I can only speak for the weather in the Seattle area. The fall temperatures here are in the 40s at night and in the 50-60s during the day. My fig tree has already lost all of its leaves(it's in a very large container). The buds for next years growth have already been set. Last winter I kept the tree in my garage while it was dormant. I will do the same thing this year. I wouldn't water your tree too much, it's my understanding that fig trees like the soil to be dry for a couple of inches down before watering.
