Yea! We’ve got figs growing! We have two Brown Turky fig trees outside that are bundled up in hay and coverings for the winter. They are supposed to be incredibly hardy.
Inside we have a Celeste tree and ‘she’ is bearing fruit! Apparently we don’t need any special pollination and this tree will produce on its own. The fig fruit is a flower with both the male and female flower parts enclosed in stem tissue … meaning the flower is inside the fruit! This is known botanically as a syconium. We’re excited to see the fruit actually developing (in our kitchen)!
