That really is an attractive and interesting looking fig. It should be added to the database. Thumbs up

I see this is a vintage thread but am curious, do you grow one of the Panache Tiger figs?


Looking in the database, I see an entry for https://garden.org/lists/plant... a Panachee fig. Would that be the same tree?


I have a brown turkey fig in a container. I never knew how much I loved fresh figs. Now they don't make it into the house. Whistling

Do you have any trouble with ants or insects getting into your figs? Kristi? When I was growing up my parents had several different fig trees. Every year, ants and insects got into them just as they were ready to pick. It was a big pain, but we still managed to have them to eat, and to make the best fig jam.

No, mine are pretty much trouble free. I've never seen any bugs on it. Did you grow up in the south? I never ate fresh figs till I moved here and now I can't imagine preserving them. Of course that would make the harvest last I guess.

I keep it in a container as the soil is poor and doesn't percolate well. In a container I can control fertilizer and water.

I was interested that the article mentioned the Brown Turkey fig is
a good container variety as well.
I hadn't found that information anywhere when I plopped mine in a tub. Whistling
