Deliciously Delectable Figs From Your Garden or Yard

The Celeste Fig Tree is a prime pick for your landscape. Here are some of the many benefits of this coveted botanical:

  • Withstands temperatures down to 10 degrees
  • Yields huge quantities of high-quality figs
  • Delicious, sweet fruit for preserves or eating fresh off the tree
  • Resistant to most pests and diseases

Astronomical value in a great fig tree. In search of a medium-sized, fruit-bearing tree that can stand up to the elements? The Celestial Fig Tree fits the bill. Highly productive, cold hardy and resistant to pests and diseases, this vigorously-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. And the medium-sized figs are great in number, due in part to their unique 'closed eye' feature. Like a built-in defense mechanism, this feature wards off the dried fruit beetle and protects against spoilage. The result? More delicious figs hanging from your tree with every harvest.

Best of all, 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'. This fruit's rich flavor combined with its crunchy seeds and chewy texture makes the Celestial Fig wonderful fresh off the tree and excellent for preserving.

And 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 Tree is a clear choice for your garden or landscape. Order yours today!

During the winter months, Fig plants can look very small and can be light on branching. This is a normal for all figs and is not a cause of concern. When Spring arrives and your plant wakes up you will see incredibly explosive growth. You will even get fruit your first year!

Celeste Fig Tree Pollination

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

Growing Zone:
The fig plant has lush foliage but I would consider it a Bush then a tree and the size is kind of misleading. The gallon size is in no reference to how tall your tree will be, well that was the case for me. I have seen more developed trees in my local nursery for the price. I thought the quality and guarantee that your tree will fruit in the first year would be worth the price. First and last purchase.

Planting & Care

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

Celeste Fig Tree 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.

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.
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 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 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.
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.
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 live in Sonoma, CA. When is the best time for me to plant this tree?
Saralynn R on Nov 11, 2016
Don't think it matters as long as you water it enough in the beginning
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 St. Louis and will plant my fig in a pot. How should I care for it during the winter when it is dormant? How often should it be watered?
Nina D on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello. I live in California and we have heat in the summer and mild winters. No snow where I live. I would recommend in the cold of winter to protect your tree by bringing it in or covering to protect roots form freezing. Lightly water in winter. Return to outside after frost danger.
I am very interested in growing. But we are near Wichita KS zone 6. Would it be risky to try and grow? We are not far from the Oklahoma boarder where the map shows they can be grown.
jaime on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you have a very sunny spot from 10 to 4 or later it will grow from April to October Then you have to cut it down and wrap it and insulation blanket and cover with say A wood frame cover to April again
