I have a really old fig tree at my house in the country. I was wanting to try to get some more started so I cut off 3 small branches about a month ago. I just stuck them in an old pot I had with potting soil. I just forgot about them and just let them get watered by whatever rain we had. This last weekend I went up there and checked on them and all three were sprouting leaves and two of them had small figs on them. I'm going to try to start some pomergranites hopefully they will be just as easy to start.
