I’m a transplant from the Texas Gulf Coast where figs are easy to grow. I’m expecting some challenges here as the climate is dryer and cooler. I recently planted a Celeste and a Texas Everbearing in the ground and have some cuttings from an unknown fig from our neighborhood community garden. I’m looking forward to learning from those who have been at it for a while!

Should still be warm enough, what zone are you in? Also, the dry will help a lot. There's a lot to learn on this site, and a lot of people with a lot of information if you learn whom to ask about what.

What in particular are you looking to learn right now?

I’m in zone 8. The trees I planted are single trunk and I think I’ll try to keep them that way. Anyone have experience with this?

Here’s where the name comes from. We have some gray foxes that live in our neighborhood and they love fruit! I’ll have to watch them with the figs if I want to eat any.

Yes. I'm in the same zone, doing the same thing. I have some potted and some in-ground. How can I help?

I have an Alma tree and three Improved Celeste cuttings that I hope turns into trees.

The Alma was a great producer on the Gulf Coast. I’ve read that it’s tough to keep them going once you get 200 miles inland due to the cooler temps. Is yours in a container?

Hey FoxHillFigs,
How soon did your Alma produce and was it early or later in the year, like what month?

I have an Alma that wanted to produce abundantly its first year. Right in the middle of August, going into September.

Thanks, I want some idea as when to expect fruit as far as the age of the tree and the month that it typically starts fruiting in my zone.
