In-Ground Recommended Fig for Seattle, WA

In-Ground Recommended Fig for Seattle, WA

It's the end of September, some of the leaves of my fig are turning yellow and some have completely dropped all their leaves. We still have until early November when our first frost date comes. Some have gone dormant earlier than others. I just let my trees do its thing, I don't plan to take any of my trees inside my greenhouse. They will remain potted and outdoors.

This is will be my fourth winter, I'm still waiting for a couple of fig varieties to ripen but they are considered as late-ripening varieties for Seattle, WA. I used to refer to Pacific Northwest but now that I see a difference in Oregon ripening time compared to Seattle, WA we are not the same. We are not as warm as Oregon, so we are cooler in comparison. Even in parts of Washington State, some are warmer due to microclimate and other parts cooler. So i like to be more precise in the city so PNW folks don't get confused why a variety works well for Oregon or certain parts of Washington doesn't work well for them even when they are in Washington State.
