This popular variety is one of the hardiest of all figs. The fruit are medium to large and a mahogany brown with sweet red flesh. Excellent for fresh eating, preserves and drying. A naturally somewhat dwarfing plant.
Celeste is also a very winter hardy and productive variety resistant to splitting and souring. The medium size fruit ripens in early to mid summer to a purple-brown color. The very sweet peach colored flesh is great for fresh eating, freezing, preserves and dried. Zones 6-10
Alma, a new fig variety released by Texas, is a late season variety with very high fruit quality. Fruit skin is golden yellow when ripe, and the golden flesh has an excellent rich, sweet flavor great for fresh eating, cooking and preserves. Very productive, even at a very early age, with moderately vigorous growth. Alma is frost sensitive, especially as a young tree and should be protected in winter. Zones 7b-10.
