The fig is mentioned in the Bible many times and is included in the biblical story of the Garden of Eden. In fact, it is a figure in the founding of quite a few great religions, and included in Greek mythological literature.

The Texas Everbearing Fig is one of the most popular figs available and for good reason. It's soft, sweet bell shaped fruit is a favorite in cooking, and it can survive at lower temperatures than other members of the genus Ficus (fig).

The fig's flesh is amber to pink with dark mahogany-purple skin, and is delicious for fresh eating as well as for jellies, jams, cookies, cakes and dried fruits.

They are also a healthy addition to any diet, and are a good source of magnesium, cooper, iron, calcium and potassium.

The attractive shrub to small tree has large, shiny 3 to 5-lobed leaves. It grows to 10 feet tall and up to 12 feet wide. Delicious fruit aside, this is a gorgeous landscape plant!

Figs are self-fruitful, unlike apples or pears, so only one fig is needed to produce fruit. Figs need full sun and well-drained soils to grow well. The pH should be between 5.5 to 8, and they grow best in USDA zones 7 through 11.

The Texas Everbearing Fig begins producing a light crop of figs in May, then bears more heavily in June through August. Figs should be left on the tree to ripen for the best flavor.

Protect your tree with bird netting or other bird deterrents because birds love fig nearly as much as we people do! Deer also love the sweet fleshy fruits.

Everbearing Fig Pollination

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

She seems to be quite happy in her location. Can't wait till she has some figs, but I think that will take a few months.
Fig tree came nicely packaged and we followed planting directions and she settled in quite well.
Because of figgys successful tavels, we also bought a Loquat tree and a cocoa tree. The Loquat seems to be doing well, she came with leaves and a good potting, unfortunately the Cocoa tree came in a very small pot with very little soil and moisture, she was a dry stick and while we are trying, I am very unhappy with her condition. I have also bought a 4in1 apple tree that seems to be quite happy and a peach tree and a banana plant for my daughter in Texas.
Is there any replacement plan for dead trees??

Chicago overbearing fig tree
At first when we received it, it was not looking good. ALL of the leaves were spotted and turning brown.. I had to cut everything off and leave it bare ...Last week after nurturing it well, it started to grow nice new green leaves and it seems to be doing better. We shall see as time goes on.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Everbearing Fig

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Everbearing Fig.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Everbearing Fig gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Everbearing Fig again after the transplant is complete.

We were introduced to this fig in New Mexico last month. Fell in love with it. Had to order one for us, one for good friends and two for our deer lease.
