Though they may have an exotic history, delicious figs really are easy to grow and maintain. Just give them plenty of sun, loose soil and ample moisture, and you're off and running. To bite into a juicy, ripe fig is a sensory pleasure that everyone should experience. To do so with a fig that you've just plucked from your own garden is in another realm entirely. There are scores of varieties to try, so how do you know what variety is perfect for you? One way is to take advantage of this value-priced collection of three cultivars of our choice. The varieties may differ (including familiar ones like Brown Turkey, and more exotic like Celeste and Champagne), but each will be labeled so you can conduct your own taste tests and growing trials right in your garden. Fruit may be sporadic the first season, but time is on your side and you'll be rewarded with sweet, juicy figs for years to come. Collection contains one each of varieties selected by our breeders as the best to try in your Southern garden or in protected patio pots in the North. Total 3 plants, labeled by variety.
