Delicious Fruit Harvests Twice Per Year
Get Twice the Production of Fruit
The Brown Turkey Fig is unique because it provides two crops of fruit per year. The first crop is small and arrives in late spring or early summer. Later, your main harvest ripens in early fall and is considerably larger. To enjoy the sweetest and richest flavor, be sure to let them ripen fully on the tree before picking.
Easy to Grow
Most figs are balmy Mediterranean varieties, but the Brown Turkey Fig is the exception. This cold-hardy bush features the finest qualities of a traditional fig, but it endures winters that would devastate most other fig trees. It does fine with winter temperatures above 10° F and is heat tolerant in the summer. It can grow to 25 ft in height if left alone, but to keep it at a manageable height, the pruning is simple. If you have limited space, you can plant it in a container. These are a charming addition to patios, as well as pool-side. Self-pollinating, so you don't need more than one in order to achieve a large harvest year after year.
Countless Health Benefits
Fruit from the Brown Turkey Fig contains a higher quantity of fiber than any other dried or fresh fruit you can buy. They are super healthy and 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.
Many Delicious Options for Eating Them
This fruit is medium to large in size with a reddish-brown skin. The meat of the fruit is a deep pinkish-red and of excellent quality. 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.

Brown Turkey Fig Pollination
Brown Turkey Figs 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.

Not at all as advertised
Spent in excess of $60 for the delivery of two 1 gallon trees; which were no more than 3.5-4 inches in height, with aprox 1/4 gallon of soil in a plastic bag. Both trees were stacked, one on top the other in a tall box. Nonetheless, I optimistically kept and planted them, which now appear to have completely withered away (by early winter). A sad waste of my time researching, effort planting, and money in ordering these "Fig trees" from Fast Growing Trees.

Planting & Care
Brown Turkey Fig Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy of heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Give your Brown Turkey Fig Tree a deep watering every two weeks. Water your tree more frequently during dry spells or if you live in a dry climate.
Usually Brown Turkey Fig Trees don't require any fertilizer, but if your lawn lacks nutrients give your Brown Turkey Fig Tree well balanced fertilizer at the beginning of Spring. Small green flowers will bloom on your Brown Turkey Fig Tree every Spring and your figs will begin to grow.
Brown Turkey Fig trees have two harvests one in the early Summer and a second larger harvest in the early Fall. Your figs will be ripe and ready to be picked when they fully turn from green to a rust brown to purple color, and their necks are curved.
