Product Description & Reviews
TEXAS EVERBEARING FIG. Medium-large brown fruit with deep burgundy pulp. This variety is similar to the Brown Turkey Fig and the two, more often than not, are reported to be the same variety. Before offering this for sale we have consulted a number of experts and have done a lot of research. This is what we have found: Texas Everbearing Fig (TF) and Brown Turkey Fig (BT) have similar cold tolerance, and somewhat similar looking fruit with very similar taste. A few minor differences reported between the two include the Texas Everbearing having three lobed leaves as opposed to five lobed leaves. (Of course, this can be variable at different stages of growth.) The TF tree is reported to be more upright. There are two major differences, one of which is the heavier first crop with the TE. Texas Everbearing, while not for"ever bearing," does have an extended season. It bears two (good) crops when conditions are conducive. The first crop (breba crop) is usually heavier than the BT's first crop. It ripens late May to late June with the second crop ripening late September through early November. The other major difference is the eye or the point where the fruit skin comes together at the apex. The "closed eye" of a fruit can prevent water, fungi, etc from entering the fruit and souring it. Brown Turkeys can have an eye that is open to semi closed. Texas Everbearing has a closed eye. This is especially beneficial in areas with higher humidity and rainfall. Wonder if your figs are ripe? The fruit stem should be hanging/drooping from the branch and the fruit should be soft. Still not sure? If you pick an unripe fig it will snap off and ooze white liquid indicating it is not ripe. Fig trees can grow for a very long time so be sure to always plan out where you want them to stay or plant them in a container where they will be smaller and you can move them around. Grows 30-40 feet. Zone 8-10. You will be receiving 1 plant between 3 & 8 inches in a 3 inch deep pot.
