  • I see that items are out of stock. When will they be available?
    Cuttings are available from late November through January. Trees are sold from April through November, with larger trees, dormant trees, and bare-rooted trees available in November. Each variety is sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Check back regularly or subscribe to the Fig Boss monthly newsletter at the top of the page for updates.
  • Can you help me choose a variety?
    Fig varieties can be broken up into a few categories. For example, I am growing in the Philadelphia area. The varieties suited to my location will be cold hardy, resistant to humidity, and will ripen early. Click each button to see a selection of varieties suited to your location. The Northeast, Mid-Atlantic & South as far west as TX, OK, KS, SD, ND, & NE, and wet areas within the PNW and CA. Check the USDA plant hardiness zone map. Northern climates or mild-summer areas like parts of the PNW & the UK. Choose the best tasting fig varieties in these areas based on my recommendations or your flavor/texture preferences.
  • Can you ID my fig variety?
    Absolutely. I would love to. Here's what I need: Photos of the ripe fruits cut open in half. Leaf photos if you have them too. Where you are growing. The history of the tree. Where does it come from? Was it planted by seed?
  • What's wrong with my fig tree?
    Common fig tree problems include overwatering, underwatering, rust, Fig Mosaic Virus (FMV), and sunburn. I've covered these topics separately on this blog. Please use the search function at the top of the page to diagnose your tree's issue. If you need more help, feel free to contact me. After I respond, you can use the paperclip icon at the bottom of the page to attach photos of the problem.
