Sweet as Sugar

Celeste Fig (Ficus carica 'Celestial') is one of the most widely planted fig trees in America and with good reason. This fig tree produces such sweet and delicious fruit that it often goes by its nickname – Sugar Fig.

The fruit is as sweet as a spoonful of sugar and has a rich, buttery smooth flavor and texture. You can eat it fresh all day, but know that it dries beautifully, too. Not only is it delicious but it is beautiful to boot. The deep green fig leaves are easy on the eyes all summer and the fruit is violet colored on the outside with rose-colored flesh inside.

This is a ‘closed-eye’ variety, which means the little eye on the bottom of the fruit stays tight resisting pests, splitting and souring.

Hardy to zone 6, this is a great fruit tree for the Deep South. It needs some winter protection in colder zones.

This self-pollinating tree ripens in July just in time for sweet summer picnics. It doesn’t need a lot of pruning. It is pest and disease resistant. It even does well in containers! This is one of the easiest fruit trees that you can grow.

Give it full sun and plenty of summer water in well-drained soil and you will be harvesting these juicy fruits for years to come. Order yours from us today! 

* Super sweet fruit in July
* Great for the south
* Disease resistant
