Good Patio Plant
Reviewed By: Ryan (Attleboro, MA)
Plant was very small when I first got it. It has grown a ton over the last few years. I live in SE MA, I move my fig trees out to the patio in spring and back into my garage in mid fall. I've gotten figs my first 3 years I've had the tree. No edible figs my first year. Only one edible fig my second year. This past summer, my third year I must have got at least 30 figs. Really good. Keep evenly watered. Don't let it get dry or stressed. Hit my figs with two scotts fruit tree spikes every spring and compost.

Wonderful plant
Reviewed By: Ashley (Madison, Wisconsin)
When we received this dwarf fig tree, I was incredibly doubtful as it was little more than a small stick with a few leaves. It's only been a few months and this fig has gone nuts! We planted it in a relatively large container and left it outside in the sun, and its doing wonderfully. I've already had to prune some small shoots down at the bottom and it has gorgeous giant and healthy leaves. I don't doubt it will be producing figs in a couple of months!

fig tree
Reviewed By: ray marshall (Lerona, West Virginia)
I live in the southern end of West Virginia. I was reluctant to order these trees because I figured they wouldn't produce fruit here unless you planted them in a container and store then inside during the Winter. What I have experienced is that I loanted three of these trees in April, 2011 and they produced leaves already and I have witnessed and was completely shocked to see some Figs on two of the trees. The tallest tree is about 18 inches tall. Had I knew that they would produce fruit so soon an in this area, I would have planted them years ago. I am just waiting to taste the ripened fruit.

A hardy one
Reviewed By: Tien (Flushing, NY)
Just wanted to let everyone know that even if the dwarf fig loses all of its leaves, DO NOT assume it has died. It may be entering a dormant phase especially when you've received it sometime in the fall. Even though I've kept my fig tree indoors as soon as I received it, all of its leaves fell out at one point (It didn't help that I replaced of its soil at one point). However, after a period of dormancy where the plant looks like a wooden stick out of the soil, the plant regrew its leaves and I see 4 fig buds!

Favorite plant!
Reviewed By: Sue (Wilmington, Delaware)
I took a chance, being in zone 7, and planted my fig outdoors. We do get winters here with many nights below freezing, even in the teens. My fig has survived. After several summers, it now produces over a hundred figs, and I eat them all! (I can't bear to give them away). I don't get two seasons of production, however. I started my little plant in a 2' X 4' container but had to transplant it into the ground after two years. I heavily mulch it in the fall and often worry come spring that it has died (I do lose branches occasionally), but the plant is a survivor. The leaves are so beautiful! The shape of the plant is more like a shrub with multiple stems than a tree. The figs continue to ripen over several weeks, but you have to watch them carefully since once they are fully ripe, they can crack, and the juice that they ooze really attracts the ants.

Faithful And Tasty
Reviewed By: A. Horne (Douglasville, Georgia)
Excellent plant. This fig tree produced 2 months after I purchased it in 2009. This is now the second year and it produced 8 figs for the summer. In ignorance' I cut 7 of the fruit off the tree because I thought something was wrong with the fact that the figs weren't ripening fast enough. Low and behold, 2 weeks after cutting off the 7 unripened figs, the fig I mistakenly left on the tree was ripe and beautiful. Needlesstosay, after eating that lone sweet delicious fig, I was really disappointed with myself for not waiting the time for the other seven to fully ripen.The fig was off the hook! It was really sweet, juicy, and delicious. I will never let impatience happen again because the one fig that made it was excellent and I can't wait for the fall crop. I see 3 buds coming up already. Gurney, you have done it again. New fig tree growers, if you need to know how long it takes for the figs to ripen, it took mine about 2-2and 1 half months. Don't get discouraged and pluck em off like I did, sit back and anticipate a very delicious and healthy snack that you cannot compare with the taste in a store!

Wonderful!
Reviewed By: Robin (Yakima, WA)
I purchased this fig about this time last year. It was a tiny sprig when it arrived. We placed it in a large pot with good potting soil then placed it in front of a long window in our living room. Last month it produced 1 fig. I ate half and gave half to my boyfriend. It was delicious. It now has about 5 fig buds on it. We can't wait to enjoy them. It has 11 leaves on it. We have a new kitten that likes to bat its large leaves. It has endured nicely. It is a conversation piece in my house as people in Yakima, WA do not have fig trees of any sort... lots of apples and cherries but no figs. I want to purchase a few more of these once I can make room for them.

Longevity
Reviewed By: J Rietzke (Savannah, GA)
I purchased this fig when I was in Raleigh, NC about 10 years ago and it lived in a steel garbage can while I was there. It produced several pounds of wonderful fruit for me every year while I was in NC. I brought it with me to GA seven years ago and finally gave it a permanent home in my new front yard. After it assimilated to the new environment it produced for me again at a pleasing rate. This was one of the best plants I have ever purchased! Thank you Gurneys!

A fig tree is a fun, and a positive investment to make - when I was a kid, my Grandma would show me how to cover them over for the winters of zone 6 around Englewood New Jersey, and that I would like to purchase one again for this new place that I am living in, in (real memories of her).

Has 4 leaves, each about 3-1/2"" long and 1 smaller leaf about 1 inch long. 1 big leaf evidently died in transit. Keep you posted."

It's huge now!
Reviewed By: Mary (San Antonio, Texas)
When I got this fig tree I thought it would be a stick with one leaf forever. It had once a week watering this summer during the biggest drought in decades and by the fall it was 4 feet tall, bushy, tons of leaves, and probably 20-30 figs so far! I'm amazed!

Fast grower
Reviewed By: Linda J (Columbus, OHio)
When I got this, it was a one foot twig. I was doubtful; however, it grew in leaps and bounds. I did not get fruit this year. The instructions indicate that it can grow to 10 feet and you will need to repot.

Simply the Best!
Reviewed By: Sandra (Rochester, MN)
I grew this on the patio in a Waterfarm. At the end of summer I had about a 4 ft fig plant with 16 figs (so far). I am eating them as they ripen and fall off the tree. The flavor is incredible. I have purchased fresh and dried in the stores, but these are WAY better. I am very impressed with this fig. It takes a LOT of water. I had to watch it pretty close because it drank a lot when it was growing and setting fruit. Entertaining to watch it grow. I would highly recommend this plant.

Little Bit Of Paradise
Reviewed By: Thomas (New York, New York)
I received this fig as a gift in the fall of 2006. It now has two stems about three and a half feet tall and three stems about a foot tall. This summer/autumn (2008) it produced 21 figs. They are still only about an inch big and green. I am waiting for them to ripen, so I can indulge. Indoors, it brings with it a little bit of the tropics and is a great conversation piece.
