Lola Martin Fig

One of the most cold hardy figs!

  • Excellent for fresh eating and preserves
  • Early ripening variety
  • Cold hardy to zone 6
Now gardeners in cooler climates can grow sweet figs outdoors year-round. The fruits taste very similar to the popular Celeste Fig, considered one of the best for fresh eating and preserves. In fact, renowned plant breeder, Jeff Bloodworth, who has been growing this fig for 28 years, called it "Hardy Celeste." Bloodworth originally received this fig cultivar from A.J. Bullard, who dubbed it Lola Martin, after the property owner where the fig tree was growing. The tree survived winter temperatures of -5 degrees F. with little injury. Like Celeste, Lola Martin Fig Tree is an earlier ripening variety. Zones 6-9.
