In colder areas grow against a south-facing wall with a frame that makes it possible to install a plastic cover in winter.

      Pick one of these fig fruit varieties to enjoy a range of flavors for months. Eat them fresh, or use them in preserves, jellies, desserts, and salads. Plant several selections of figs .   I F THERE IS A FRUIT that’s the grail for grow-your-own, it’s the fig–too delicate to ship in peak ripeness, and unsurpassed at just that moment. The fig can be a tricky character, one that readers and listeners often ask for help with, whether they are trying to cheat the Zones and grow one in a pot, hauling it into shelter in winter, or planting in a warmer zone in the open ground.
