Great Northern Hardiness!

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.

I had forgotten which company I had ordered a fig tree from and ended up ordering two this spring. One from Parks and one from another company. I was incredibly disappointed when my 6inch potted tree arrived from the other company. One week later I was delighted to find a package from Parks on my doorstep. Inside was a lovely bare root 3 foot fig tree. We potted up the tree and within a week it was starting to grow its leaves. One month later the "other" sad little tree looks exactly the way it did when it arrived....a tiny 6" cutting. I will definitely be sticking with Parks in the future!
