Can anyone suggest the best variety of fig for this area? I am actually out on the peninsula in Bremerton west of Tacoma. I grew up in the south and love fresh figs. I have tried the larger fruited green figs and they are an OK choice. I would prefer a brown varietal if that is possible in my area. Thanks in advance.
Check with your local county extension office. They are associated with the Washington State University which will have some gardens which they test grow to see what works in your area.
Friends or neighbors have fig trees that you like? A little rootone and a snippit in either water or your soil mix is easily grown. It takes too long sometimes. I suggest you get to your favorite garden store to see what they have.

I believe this has more to do with the type of fig tree that you have. I have this type also, and a friend who has a nursery said if I want large figs, I should plant a Turkey Fig. I plan to do so this Fall. My fig tree bears all summer, but they are very small figs.

Just browsing and found one of my posts from the past. I would like to update this answer. The figs were small on my young trees, but now they are 7 years old, and each year they produce larger figs. The size does depend on the type of fig tree, but mine are now about 3 times the size of the first crop. Mine produce figs from early summer until frost. I live in Hot Springs Arkansas.
I just bought a brown turkey fig tree (3 ft tall) for my mom. She lives in a trailer home and I'm concerned about where she can store it in winter. She does not have a garage. Any suggestions?

I have never heard of this, maybe your county agent can give you some info, good luck.
Add about two tablespoon garlic paste to a jug of water, stir well and spray. Sprinkle wood ashes. Good luck
