I've collected ever since I was a young boy, in my teens and even today as an adult. The list is long so just believe me when I say I was almost "a hoarder". I collected coins, comics, toys, scale models, etc. I even have my own collection of kids and pets. The last thing I ever thought I would be collecting was figs. One tree purchase and a few generous fig community members welcoming me to the community with fig cuttings led me to have a fairly large fig variety collection. In return, to show my appreciation to those generous members and the entire fig community, I created the Fig Database™.

Hello and welcome to the Fig Database™. When I was young, I remember gardening with my grandma picking eggplants that were bigger than my face and sneaking blackberries and other fruits that were in my reach. I have always been passionate about flowers and developed a love for creating a butterfly garden with my kids. My husband (collector of all things) purchased his first fig tree a few years ago and has now turned into a huge collection. I developed a love for figs when I tasted a Golden Rainbow fig grown from one of our own trees. There's something about that honey sweetness and seed crunch that got me hooked! I love learning about new varieties of figs and Fig Database™ is the perfect place to do so. I hope you enjoy your fig research on our site.

Figs are an amazing fruit and growing figs from cuttings is my favorite part of the hobby - maybe second favorite to eating ripe figs. Gardening has been an interest of mine since high school and about 10 years ago I started growing fruit trees. I discovered figs about 5 years ago and haven't looked back. I have a number of in ground figs and many more in pots. I also have a blog and sell fig cuttings and plants at Tinker Bug Figs.

Doug Sco' here.
I am blessed to be living in fig heaven... Thermalito, California. Surrounded by hundreds of wild fig trees growing throughout the community. These are the offspring of an Adriatic fig orchard that was cultivated here back in 1916. I've been sitting atop of a tractor in our citrus and stone fruit orchards here in Northern Calif since the 1950's... from the time that I was tall enough to reach the clutch pedal. I guess I came by the addiction to horticulture honestly, as my family has been sod-busting since my 7th Great-grandfather stepped off of the Mayflower at Plymouth Rock.
I've only been growing figs since 2012, and probably have about 450 or so figs in cultivation here now. But I will be forever indebted to these silly little trees... as they brought about the introduction of some incredibly wonderful enthusiasts in our close-knit ficus community!

I love gardening, especially edibles. I grew up on a farm in middle Tennessee and I started propagating berry plants at the age of 8 and have scoured the globe for unique fruiting plants but mostly focusing on brambles. I have grown over 100 varieties of brambles, 50 varieties of blueberries, 75 varieties of corn, 100 varieties of melon and hundreds of fruit trees just to name a few. Gardening is a way of life for me and my family.
By profession, I am a chiropractor, acupuncturist and nutritionist and I have practiced since 2005. In 2007, I became fascinated with cacao and its health benefits so I created a unique product and started a company around brewed cacao. That led me to eventually move to Santa Barbara, CA in June of 2018 where I immediately bought my first fig plants. I made some amazing friends in the local community that helped me get a jump on my fig collection.
My goal is to trial as many varieties as possible and see how they perform for me and to decide which are my absolute must haves. I try to get every fig that comes highly recommended and that has led me to acquire over 250 varieties already in just 6 short months!

Hi everyone! I have been gardening organically in the Santa Barbara area for over 25 years, and I love being outside watching my plants grow. In the past I thought figs were just so so - until I started bagging them this year and eating properly ripened figs. When you have your first truly ripe fig it will change your life! Now I want to try them all and share them all. I especially enjoy finding new seedling figs in the wild. They are all so unique and full of life. I feel fortunate to live in wasp country and to have space to grow my ever-expanding collection of around 150 varieties (currently). In 2005 another of my passions ignited when I learned to graft at a CRFG scion exchange. I think everyone should try it because it is not as hard as you think and it opens up many more growing possibilities. Thanks for reading this, and I wish you a fruitful year ahead

Hi everyone, I'm Ed, from Southwestern Pennsylvania. I love and enjoy growing figs with a passion. I have been growing figs since 2014 and currently growing about 20 fig plants in ground and 70 or so in SIPs. I am also a life long gardener and fruit grower. Experimenting with different ways to grow in ground and containers to see what works best for me here.
