Sweet, Sweet Fruit That is Easy for Home Gardeners!

This delectable treat, the Celeste Fig, is known as the “sugar fig” for its deliciously sweet flavored, medium-sized fig fruit!

The Celeste fig tree features violet-skinned fruit with a rose-colored pink flesh that is sugary sweet with a rich flavor and taste. This cultivar requires minimal pruning and aside from winter protection in freezing temperatures is a low maintenance fruit tree.

The ficus carica aka common fig is a well-known and widely planted fig tree. The Celeste fig plant falls under this category as well as the Brown Turkey fig. They are self-fertile and do not require cross-pollination.

A small, closed eye on this fig prevents fruit rot from insects and moisture, thus increasing fruit production. The dried fruit beetle can gobble them down so just keep an eye out. You may want to create a protected area from other critters like squirrels and birds who may also eat your fresh figs!

The Celeste plant is a deciduous tree meaning it will lose its leaves over winter. The bright green leaves and baby fruit will appear in early spring once the weather permits. You may have a breba crop on the previous year’s growth!

Quick shipment, plant in great shape.

The little fig tree arrived with abundant foliage which I thought it would lose, but it has kept all of it for a month now and new leaves have emerged. Plant looks very healthy and likes its new hydroponics bed.
