Delicious Fruit Harvests Twice Each Year
Why Brown Turkey Fig Trees?
With the Brown Turkey Fig, you get twice the production. Because it grows two harvests each year, the Brown Turkey is unique and highly sought-after. 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, offering the sweetest, richest flavor imaginable.
And it couldn’t be easier to grow. Your Brown Turkey Fig features the finest qualities of a traditional fig but it endures winters that would devastate most other fig trees and tolerates heat well, too. If your climate is outside its recommended growing zones, you can even grow it indoors.

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.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Brown Turkey Fig in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sun daily). Brown Turkey Figs also prefer well-drained soil, though they are adaptable to a number of different soil types. If you plant in a container to keep indoors, place your Brown Turkey Fig Tree by a large sunny window.
Once you’ve selected your area, dig a hole that’s large enough to accommodate your tree’s root ball, place your tree, and backfill the surrounding soil. Water to settle its roots and mulch around the tree to preserve moisture. If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your tree’s shipped container. Ensure the pot has drainage holes, use organic planting mix and place your tree. Finally, water the tree until you see water escaping the drainage holes at the bottom of your pot.
2. Watering: Typically, we recommend watering your tree once a week, or more frequently in drier, hotter climates. If you’re not sure when to water, check your soil about 3 inches down – if the soil is dry, water until it is moist or until you see water draining from your container.
3. Fertilizing: Brown Turkey Fig Trees will not usually need fertilizing, but if you notice slow growth, fertilize at the start of spring with a well-balanced blend, like 10-10-10.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Bush, not a tree!
Turkey fig and Meyer lemon arrived alive and healthy. Fig was more of a bush as there was no single branch straight or dominant. Replanted into a larger pot, the fig looks good.
This is a very common growth pattern for fig trees! We're so sorry for the confusion!
Hardy and Prolific!
This fig tree grew the first season and produced lots of figs. Then we had the greatest winter freeze ever in Texas we had ever had, and it froze back. I pruned it and kept watering it, and it came back beautifully! Now it is fruiting and is taller than the 6’ fence! An amazingly hearty tree! Great roots! Thanks for such a healthy tree!
