If you have a Brown Turkey fig, you should be able to grow it outdoors in a sheltered spot with good protection from winter winds. It will most likely freeze and die back down to the ground each winter but should regrow and fruit anyway. Other varieties are less winter hardy and so should be grown as container plants and brought into a cool but protected place (temperature above freezing) each winter.
