    • Foliage Type: 5 lobed medium green
    • Pruning: Does not require regular pruning once established. Prune fig trees annually during the first three growing seasons to establish desired shape. Best to prune immediately after the main crop is harvested in early fall. Do not prune mature Celeste trees heavily because this can reduce harvest.
    • Soil Requirement: Rich, moist, well-drained soil.
    • Additional Information: Celeste is almost as widely grown as Brown Turkey. Of the old standards, it is considered to be the best tasting and very good to excellent for both fresh eating and preserving (either frozen or processed as fig preserves). Celeste has a tightly closed "eye," making it resistant to dried fruit beetle and rain entry, which can cause fruit souring. Will drop un-ripe fruit in hot weather, but it is so outstanding in overall quality that it is worth some loss. Fortunately, Celeste ripens well before most other figs, allowing harvest before the worst heat. Can also be grown as a container plant and moved to a protected area to prevent winter dieback. Uses include fresh eating, screening, background, specimen or container planting. Allow figs to ripen on the tree and pick as they ripen. Fresh figs do not store well. Can be dried. When picking figs, wear gloves or long sleeves because the sap from the tree can irritate your skin.
