Home > Fruit Trees > Fig Trees
Fig trees are primitive fruits planted by ancient civilizations and were often documented in Bible Scripture and Roman- Greek literature.  The sterile, fig fruit trees of the American gardens require no cross pollination, as do the European and Mideastern figs.  Most fig trees are easy to grow and will normally begin bearing successive crops in the spring when they reach the climax in fig production during the fall just before the onset of fall frosts.  Older people love to eat and enjoy figs that are stuffed with a dense concentration of tiny seeds that aid in elderly food digestion.  The flavor of figs can range from bitter to bland or honey sweet, and these sweet tasty figs are filled with a depth of flavorful robustness and an agreeable level of palatability found in few other fruits.  Fig trees grow in poor soil profiles or in rich, earthy, organic soils and respond with a generous production of delicious figs when the trees are planted in the full sun or when grown in the deep shade of a large leafy tree.  Black, brown or white figs are favorite colors of the most common fig gardeners, but yellow, white and purple colored figs also are other unconventional choices to plant.  The growing and usefulness of figs is most commonly focused  on fresh eating, but fig fruits also are dried commercially for later eating such as cooked and canned for fig preserves and fig newtons.

  • LSU Fig
    LSU released their own variety of fig in 1991 known now as the LSU Purple Fig. Ripening from summer even into the fall you'll enjoy these figs for months at a time. By far here at Aaron's Farm we prefer the LSU Fig to most others and especially when eaten directly off of the tree.
