Hey, thanks, gemstone1. We have a fig tree in the backyard of the house we're buying in southern New Mexico. We don't know much about figs but ours could very well be a Brown Turkey Fig tree and we'll go into that website some more and e-mail and/or call the people at that nursery with our questions and concerns. A great find, thanks!

Omg, I've never heard of all these fig varieties. You're gonna have me doing some research ... I didn't think of growing figs up there in AR until I saw this post. And it made me realize, 'OMG, there are plenty critters in semi-forested areas like that.' #NaturalState

A pair of mature fig trees can be found in the walled garden at Ashland, the Henry clay Estate here in Lexington, Ky - no idea what variety they are, but they do bear regularly, so I would assume figs would also do well in considerably warmer Arkansas.

Figs do fine in Arkansas. Growing up,there were a lot of old home sites around. My grandfather owned a place that had a nice fig tree. We'd pick and eat as many as we could. My father in law had a huge fig tree at his house. These tress were always overloaded.

In my research, I noted that at least south Arkansas is USDA hardiness zone 8, so almost everything grows here except for 9-11 tropical stuff and 1-2 cold zone stuff... I'm going to find out how king UT takes fog trees to mature... Their leaves are so gorgeous
