Great Northern Hardiness!

Spreading and heavy-bearing, it's an ornamental edible!
Brown Turkey is "the" name in American figs, thanks in large part to its exceptional winter hardiness in zones 6 and 7. This heavy-bearing, handsome spreading tree is compact enough for containers that can be brought indoors north their hardiness range, and with each passing year it grows more beautiful in bark, leaf, and silhouette!

But most of all, Brown Turkey is a fig producer. Expect big crops of 4-inch fruit, deep bronze on the outside and rich amber with hints of pink on the inside. The flesh is succulent, sweet, and tender. And this fig is self-pollinating, so you need plant only one. Whether you want figs for your table or simply to attract birds, Brown Turkey delivers!

This tree reaches 10 to 15 feet high and wide, with smooth bark that grows more ornamental each year. The bare silhouette in winter is very pleasing, and the foliage even more so: large, hand-shaped leaves nearly a foot long and wide cast elegant shadows on the ground and offer nice contrast to other plants in the garden.

The fruit emerges as tiny green nubs beneath the leaves in early to midsummer, growing larger and ripening in fall. Birds adore it, and you will too!

Find a place in full sunshine for Brown Turkey in all but the warmest climates, where it appreciates a bit of afternoon shade or dappled sunlight. Very low-maintenance, Brown Turkey needs only good soil drainage plus plenty of water and sun to thrive for many decades. Zones 6-10.
