(Ficus carica) If you are among the many people who associate a fig tree with only a hot dry climate, you are in for a delicious surprise. Fig trees thrive in the Pacific Northwest and much of the nation. Most of the varieties we offer have been selected for cold hardiness and early ripening. A warm location with a southern exposure is important for ripening fruit in a maritime climate. Mature plants are all hardy to about 10° F. Fig plants can be grown in colder climates if they are pruned as a bush and covered in winter or grown in a pot and brought inside in winter. We offer vigorous, well rooted plants.
