Special Attributes

Known as the "sugar fig" due to its rich sweet flavor and one of the more cold hardy fig trees, Celeste has survived winters as far north as USDA Zones 7a. Great for fresh eating or making preserves.

NOTE: In USDA Zone 7, during the first winter or two after planting it would be a good idea to provide some winter protection for your Celeste Fig Tree. A few inches of straw or shredded wood mulch will help protect the roots during winter. Planting your Celeste Fig Tree on the east side of a home or where it will be sheltered from north and western winds will also help to provide protection during the cool season.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Interested in edible landscaping? What could be more enjoyable and rewarding than installing a landscape you can eat? Fig trees are fine specimens for use in the edible landscape. Their large and bold leaves provide a tropical effect and you'll be rewarded with loads of delicious figs! Celeste Fig is ideal for use in the home orchard and as a specimen or warm season privacy screen in landscape borders.

Cultural Preferences

Fig trees produce the best fruit in moderately to slightly acidic, moist but well-drained fertile soil that is rich in organic matter. In soil with low fertility it'll be worth your time to mix in some organic compost to the native soil. They like the soil to hold a good supply of water when the fruits are developing in summer, but not so much that the soil stays constantly soggy or wet, which can be problematic. The best and most fruits will are produced when trees are growing in full sun. However, fig trees that receive a little shade during the hottest part of summer days will still produce good crops.
