The Brown Turkey Fig is easy to grow in any sunny spot. It thrives in poor, dry soil, and once it is established it is very drought resistant. It is usually free of any pests or diseases, and very easy to grow. It will grow outdoors in the open in zones 8 and 9. In zone 7 and sheltered parts of zone 6 it is best grown across a south-facing wall. In colder zones it should be grown in a pot and protected from freezing in winter.

The fig is an unusual fruit because once picked from the tree it will stop ripening. Unfortunately, un-ripe figs have very little taste and yet for commercial transport and sale
