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 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.

When the tree arrived the tree was bare and maybe 10 inches tall so I wanted it to beef up a bit before planting into the ground. After transplanting it into a bigger pot it absolutely exploded! It's pushing 2 ft now and full of healthy gorgeous green leaves. I could be happier and cannot wait until it starts to bare fruit.

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.

Cute healthy tree
Our tree arrived quickly and very well packaged. It was a little smaller than I had hoped, 12-18 inches. Leaves were very healthy. Not expecting any figs anytime soon.

Planting & Care

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

Celeste Fig Planting Diretions

The Celeste Fig (Ficus Carica ‘Celestial’), also known in the south as the “sugar fig” is a cold hardy variety recommended for zones 7-11. A smaller tree, reaching a mature height and width of 5-10 feet, it’s great for small yards or can be potted. The leaves are known to get very large, even up to a foot long and the fruits are violet-brown in color.  Bite into one and you’ll notice the rose colored flesh that is sweet and rich, making it perfect for drying and preserves. The fruit ripens in July and has a signature ‘closed eye’ which helps protect from splitting and souring and will also ward off insects.  It’s a nutritious fruit, containing high fiber and potassium and can even help with weight loss and controlling blood pressure.

Planting Location: When deciding where to plant your fig tree keep in mind that fig trees will perform best in full sun. They can tolerate shade, but prefer full sun. Plant them in an area that doesn’t get hit with harsh winter winds. Fig trees grown in containers should be placed by large sunny windows if kept indoors.

Planting Directions (in ground):
1) Once you’ve selected the perfect planting site dig a hole that’s three times wider than your tree’s root ball, and just as deep.
2) Loosen the soil on the sides of the hole with a shovel or pitchfork. Next, remove any debris like dirt clumps, grass, or rocks from the hole.
3) Place your tree in it, and make sure it’s level with the surrounding ground and standing straight up.
4) Begin to back fill your hole and gently tamp the soil down to eliminate air pockets.
5) After the planting process is complete give your fig tree a slow deep watering by holding a hose at its base and counting to 20.
6) Mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture and to keep weeds/grasses back.

Planting Directions (potted): Be sure the pot has good drainage!
1) For container trees, select a container that’s slightly larger than the root ball (1-2 sizes larger than the initial container the fig came in works best).
2) Add a mixture of your natural soil and organic planting mix to the container before you place your tree in it.
3) Make sure your tree stands straight up in its container and give it a good drink of water until you see water coming out the bottom of the pot. If your pot doesn’t contain drainage holes, you can quickly add some with a small drill.
4) Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering again.

Watering: Fig trees have a fair drought tolerance. Once established they will need a deep watering once every one to two weeks. Feel your soil, if it feels like its drying out close to the surface then it’s time to water your tree. Trees kept in containers will often need more water than those planted in the ground. Keep on your trees more often during times of extreme heat or prolonged droughts.

Fertilization: Usually fig trees don’t require any fertilizing, unless you know that your lawn is lacking in nutrients. If you need to fertilize your trees it’s best to do so in the early spring. Use a slow release, well balanced organic fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10.

Weed Control: Placing a 3 to 4 inch thick layer of mulch around the base of your trees will prevent weeds from growing. It will also regulate the soil temperature, and help the soil retain moisture.

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.

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.
What time of year does the celestial fig bear fruit? I am in zone 11
towerbac t on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am in Southern California, my trees bear fruit year round.
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?
Mollie T on Aug 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sand. Store-bought, pre-rinsed sand mixed with clay at the right ratio will create a sandy loam. It should form a loose ball when you grab a pinch of the moistened mixture and roll it. Too much sand if it crumbles; too little if it forms a tight, smooth imarble. This will create a well draining soil without deleting the nutrients of the clay. That said, soil quality isn't only about the consistency. There's ph/acidity (ever notice not much grows under pines?) and nutrients, for starters.
i live in an apartment so i have to plant the tree in a pot. It becomes windy too by the shore. Will that be a problem? mine is zone 7.
greenthumb? on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine is in a large pot to. And it is doing fine. Still small but had tiny sweet fruit last year.
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.
I’ve had one for three years now and it has never made a tree. It comes up every year with several different branches and makes plenty of fruit, but every winter it dies at the ground no matter how mild of a winter it is. Any suggestions on how to make it grow into a tree? We live in the Fort Worth are in Texas.
Dennis S on Nov 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've had one for three years now and still not put it in the ground. It stays as a small tree to be planted and
has never changed; that is, never makes any fruit. Just gets a little bigger each year and looks healthy. I hope
to plant it this year but have not really picked the "Perfect" spot.
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)
