I'm new to growing figs, but not to growing plants ( house is mostly filled with orchids but many other things,too, like citrus). So far, I have only one fig, Atreano, that I purchased last Spring. Last Fall it gave me 1 fig that was not fully sweetened. That was the first fig that I ever ate (besides fig newtons) and was quite pretty -lime green on the outside and strawberry pink on the inside. This Spring I plan on ordering V de B from Edible Landscape. That way I can have one light and one dark fig.
My growing conditions aren't the best. No attached garage. I do have a basement (cellar actually) but it stays pretty warm. Last Fall I let my fig go dormant outside and brought it down the basement where it stayed till it broke dormancy a couple of weeks ago (or so). It is now upstairs and leafing out in the sunshine. It received dolamic lime and is on wait list for re potting.
