|I am planning to purchase a Peter's Honey Fig Tree. Is it a sweet variety? How big does it get? How should I maintain it (Maintenance). What is its growth rate? Does it require pruning/fertlization? How does the fruit look and taste like? And does it bear heavy crops? Lastly, does it live well in Dallas, Texas?

|The Peter's Honey Fig Tree forms a light yellow-green fruit. When totally ripe on the tree, the Peter's Honey Fig secretes yellow, honey-colored droplets with a sweet taste and an amber pulp. The tree grows well from zone 7 through 11 and can reach 15-25' in height and width. Enjoy your new fig tree!
