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 Purchase
This tree...actually trees...came beautifully, well packaged. Nice size. The "extra one" was smaller with roots slightly intertwined. I planted both and they are doing well.
Bonus Fig Tree!
It may be a bit soon to rate this one, as I haven't had it very long. I had received a warranty credit for a plum tree that died, and since they no longer had the size of plum tree that I originally ordered, I replaced it with a smaller tree and had credit left over. So, I ordered a fig tree, too. I planted it in a large pot. Almost immediately most of the leaves turned yellow and fell off. However, new leaves are appearing, so all seems well so far. There were a couple of tiny figs on the tree when it arrived. Those have fallen off as well, but maybe there will be some more this fall? Looking forward to finding out.

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.
