Honey Flavored Green Figs


The Peter’s Honey Fig produces very sweet, shiny, high quality, and greenish yellow fruit when ripe. The fruit tastes syrupy and honey-like. This fig will melt in your mouth! Peter's Honey Fig is superb for fresh eating. These figs can be used for drying and canning too.


It has good cold tolerance, but it requires a warm location with a southern exposure in order to ripen, especially in the maritime Northwest. In other words, it requires a sunny, hot exposure in cooler areas.


If a fig is killed to the ground because of cold weather, it will come up with new growth when the weather warms up. An excellent way to get figs to produce ripe fruit in colder climates is to plant potted figs when the weather warms up. 


Plant the pot with the rim a few inches above ground level. Roots will go through the drain holes at the bottom of the pot and produce nutrients for the plant. When the leaves fall in late fall, dig the pot up and store inside. Replant again next spring.


This tree thrives in full sun and in the South it ripens its first crop in May and a later crop in October and November.


Peter's Honey Fig originated in Sicily.
