Sun-ripened, freshly picked figs are such a treat—and Texas Blue Giant Fig is a winner in the South. The trees produce huge fruits with attractive purple skin and a delicious, melting amber flesh. When allowed to ripen on the tree, the mild-flavored fruits are very sweet. Texas Blue Giant thrives in Texas and in other hot areas. In cooler climates, the easy-to-grow, small tree can also be grown in large containers and brought indoors during the cooler months. Ripens in August through October, depending on where it is grown. Self-fruitful. Zones 8-10.
