General information on green-fruited fig trees: The answer to the most frequent question in advance: green figs taste just as sweet and aromatic as purple ones. Only our eyes make a difference, implying that red fruits always taste better than green ones because they signal "ripeness" to us. All other characteristics of green and purple figs are the same: their leaves are deeply lobed and aromatic, their growth and branches are vigorous, and their bark is attractively light gray and smooth. Since figs are hardy and leafless in winter, they are very easy to overwinter indoors in unheated areas with low light. Or they can be planted in the garden, where they have a naturally high frost resistance, which can be increased by a simple winter protection of fleece or bamboo mats (no plastic foil!!) (for more information see description at "Purple figs"). In average summers, all green and purple fig varieties will ripen by fall if they have full sun and are always well watered. Drought results in small, sapless "fruit dummies." If an early fall temperature drop threatens to stop fruit ripening, it is advisable to place the plants sheltered near the house or bring them indoors in time for the figs to ripen, which they do quickly in bright, warm places.
