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 County Extension Office
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.
