Ficus carica 'Celeste(?)'

<< PREV Image 1 of 2 NEXT >>


The common Fig, a large deciduous shrub originally from the Mediterranean and Middle East region has been cultivated since ancient times for its edible fruit.  There are many named varieties.  This may be the variety 'Celeste' which produces abundant small sweet figs and is widely grown in the southern U.S. including here locally.   These were propagated from cuttings shared with us by Gail Ebner, wife of Aiken City Councilman Reggie Ebner.  She took these cuttings from an old plant at her former home in east Texas but it originally came from her ancestral home in Many, Louisiana where it had grown since at least the 19th century.  Figs should be planted in a sunny location with fertile, well-drained soil.
