    Awesome plant, fruit 1st year.

    This is a second review I’m writing, 3 months or so after my 1st for this plant. The fig I kept for myself is doing fantastic. I have it out on my deck, with “full sun” (8 or so hours). I’ve repotted it twice now, it’s grown to twice the size I bought it and has 23 figs on it, 5 of which are halfway done ripening and the others are nodes. The packaging was good as expected, and both plants while arriving dormant in about November, sprang to life. For now I will have my Fig as a potted plant, once it’s more mature I will put it in the ground, I live in zone 8, and sometimes we do have extremely cold days (15F) and snowy winters. It did get left out a night or 2 in a random snow storm, but was unphased. Hasn’t wilted once during our heat wave, it was 98F for about a week, and I expected to have to move it. Zero complaints, wish I bought more at the time!! Bought more plants (banana and dragon fruit) the other day and will be reviewing soon.

    Beautiful trees

    I live in zone 7 purchased 2 of the three gallon trees. I left them in there pots for a couple weeks until I had their containers built and filled. I used standard miracle grow potting mix with some logs at the bottom. I planted both trees at the same time and within weeks of planting one was throwing figs out, at least 7 on one and 1 on the other. They also set amazing growth in the 45-50 or so days they have been planted. They look amazing and healthy.
