Hello! Thanks for checking out my hardy fig list. this is the result of many hours of combing through old posts on GardenWeb (now Houzz), figs4fun, and OurFigs as well discussions with growers and my own experiences.

If you haven't yet, I encourage you to join and participate in the OurFigs forum. There are many fig growers of all experience levels to discuss all things fig with. You may find me there as 'Kelby'.

As you explore the world of figs, you will quickly discover there are is almost always a hit new variety that everyone wants which commands absurd prices. Unless you have money to burn, don't bother! They tend to drop in price quickly after 2-3 years and there is often a very similar fig that can be had for substantially less money.

If you are simply looking for the good, easy figs to grow, here is my brief list of varieties that everyone should have for growing in ground in cold climates: Malta Black, Improved Celeste, and a Mt Etna type (Sal's GS, Hardy Chicago, MBvs, etc). I am still trialing Ronde de Bordeaux, Florea, and Adriatic JH but am fairly confident in recommending those as well.

Many figs are also easy to grow in pots, just be careful they don't need a long season to ripen (like Black Madeira or Preto). Some of my favorites for growing in pots are Atreano and English Brown Turkey types (Nexoe, Sweet George, LaRadek's).
