- CommentsEnjoy tasty figs with dark mahogany skin and rich red flesh. Good for eating fresh, baking, preserves or dried fruit. In northern climates, plant in a container on the patio and move indoors for the winter. When the fruit is fully ripe and at is peak for eating, shipping them to the grocery is difficult. Every summer you can walk out into your own yard and enjoy them right away in mid summer and again in late summer to early fall. Figs are self fruitful, no need for another to pollinate. Good for fresh eating, baking, preserves or dried fruit.
