Hi! I just purchased a home and would really love to add a fig tree to my backyard. Do you have any advice as to what kind of tree I should purchase and how to care for it? thanks!

Fig trees do grow in the Phoenix area. Black Mission, Brown Turkey, Kadota and Conadria are the most popular varieties. Plant your tree in full sunshine, water it on a regular basis, and prune it (when necessary) in October after you've harvested the fruit. Fig trees are relatively easy to grow. Expect it to take 2-3 years after planting before it will produce fruit. Enjoy.
