P. Allen Smith has talked on his show several times about a "Big Fig" that he has on his place around Little Rock....it was there at the old home place that he bought to build his Garden Home Retreat on, and he had to move it. It is a Brown Turkey fig. It survived the move quite well, he said.

He has also mentioned a variety called 'Celeste' on his web site as being a good one.

They grow in the same places as grit trees.

My gardener wife has several varieties and they all do great; if we could keep the coons, squirrels, and ants out of them.

Isn't there a such coon/general critter repellent? If so, what ?

not really other than bb guns and who wants to kill the creatures? Most of us just want to keep them out of our fruit trees and gardens.

The farm supply stores have some liquids that we have used, and it works, but it is gone after the first rain. We still harvest some though. Looking forward to this year. I trimmed ours back two years ago to get the fruit back into reach. I live-trapped lots of critters last year and looking forward to see how much effect that will have this year.

Point taken. Nobody wants to kill the poor animals. I was hoping there was a safe chemical compound to deter them. True story: I was at the Walmart yard center and saw rabbit repellent on clearance...first time I ever saw such a thing. Hilarious,right?

It washes off? Hmm sounds like it could get expensive.
