For the past 3 years I've had a fig tree in a container. Always had a few figs in the spring/summer, maybe a dozen. Didn't expect much since it was small.

Last fall/winter I planted it in the ground. This spring I had maybe 2 dozen figs and didn't think anything else about it. Then, about a month ago, I noticed more fruit being formed. A lot of fruit, maybe close to 4 dozen. A couple days ago actually picked a half dozen.

Will these figs continue to ripen until frost? Or stop all together when daytime temps get below a certain point?

From Zone 6B, comes this reply to "How long does it take for figs to ripen?" <<My fig tree ripens each year in late September; it started producing great figs in year three. Do you think your container is large enough? When I can get a good cutting, with roots, from my tree I want to try growing it in a 24-inch diameter container. My tree, a cutting from a neighbors tree, Turkish variety, is buried in a foot of mulch, never covered, pruned heavily each Spring. It grows about ten feet tall, and the figs are a joy to eat.>>

With you in LA (from your profile), it probably will not take that long, unless you are in Norther LA.

Hope this helps,

Donna

In NW LA.

I thought I bought a Celeste but maybe its a Brown Turkey since I have a second crop that is much larger than the first.

We will see. My garden is a continous experiment.
