Just about to pick these and I am quite excited! I am in zone 6a/b in Cincinnati, OH.

  • Petite Negri from Raintree
  • O'Rourke/Improved Celeste from Petals from the past
  • Hardy Chicago from Virginia Berry Farm via a local nursery

Thanks all! Now if the rest of my trees would just hurry up! I will post pictures upon harvesting.

Tamar, I planted these just this spring. All, with the exception of Chicago Hardy, were purchased from mail order nurseries and were shipped in 1 gallon pots. All have been replanted in 15g glazed ceramic pot with a soil free mix.

Congrats, my fellow Ohioan ;-) I have two Brown Turkeys that will hopefully ripen. I know, most people wouldn't get excited about them, but it's all I'll have this year. I'm just excited to try any fresh fig. Next year should be much better.
