Hunt Fig

Adapted to the humid Southeast.

  • Excellent for fresh eating
  • Small fruits with fewer seeds
  • Very cold tolerant
Interesting sweet flavor is excellent for fresh use. Smaller fig size than others, but is a reliable producer of large crops because it is very cold tolerant. Amber-colored flesh has fewer seeds than others. Well adapted to humid, rainy areas of Southeastern states. Zones 7-10.
