One of the hardiest figs for our climate (zone 6) is named Brown Turkey. As the name suggests the fruit is brownish-red or blackish-purple, relatively large and sweet. They do not require pollination. Immature fruit and branches contain sap which can be an eye and lip-irritant. Palmate leaves are very ornamental – mid green and large, with deep, rounded lobes. Pruning is possible in spring, for stronger fruiting you can cut new branches after 3rd leaf in summer.

It needs a sunny spot preferably at a south-facing wall where it can accumulate a lot of warmth and is sheltered in winter. Young plants survive approx. -15°C, older plants can take -20°C or more with protection. In any case it is fully root-hardy i.e. it always re-sprouts from the ground level if branches are damaged by frost. It needs alkaline soil with some clay and plenty of humus-rich material.
