Celeste Fig

Description
Attractive form and tasty fruits make Celeste Fig a favorite. Its fruits are good for both fresh eating and preserving, either frozen or processed as fig preserves. Its tightly closed eyes makes the fruits resistant to dried fruit beetle and rain entry, which can cause fruit souring. Celeste Fig can be grown as a container plant and moved to a protected area to prevent winter dieback. Self-fruitful. Bareroot. Ficus 'Celeste'

  • Unique CharactersticsGurney's: 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. Self-fruitful.
