A WIDE RANGE OF FLAVORS
There are hundreds of varieties of figs that have been developed all over the world. These varieties vary in fruit size, color, and flavor. Some fig varieties produce fruits that are the size of a big marble, while others produce fruits that can be almost as big as a tennis ball.
The three general flavor profiles of figs are berry, honey, and sugar. However, some figs can have a combination of sugar and berry flavors or a combination of honey and berry flavors . To learn more about fig flavor profiles, click here.

Sugar figs are the most common flavor profile and what most people think a fig tastes like. These figs are sweet and great for making homemade jelly. Sugar figs can have an amber, brown, or even a purple skin color.
CAN YOU GROW FIGS?
Fig trees perform best in states with mild winters, but they are somewhat cold-tolerant. Established fig trees can handle temperatures between 15-20°F, as long as those temperatures are not sustained for several days.
If you live in an area with winter temps of 15°F or below, we recommend covering the trees with frost protection fabric in the winter months.
You can also grow fig trees in large pots and move them indoors during the winter. Many of our northern customers do this and it's a great way to ensure they can still enjoy delicious figs in the summer months!
