Do fig cultivars differ in cold hardiness
or is it just a matter of not too much fertilizer and some patience? Our fig came from DH's grandmother's garden, where it was hunkered down on the south side of a shed and was frequently cut back by winter cold. Here it grows quite large every season but the growth is too tender to overwinter. Last year I put new pieces of the plant south of the house and up on top of the hill above the house, so it will interesting to see if there is any difference in performance among the 3 locations. I saw very large figs out in the open around here all of the time but no one knows the cultivar names.
