Figs on Oregon Coast?
We just moved to the Brookings, OR area and are excited to be able to grow some different things. We are about 1/2 mile off the Pacific at 425' elevation. Was wondering how figs might do here. Have read that Conadria, King or White Genoa might be best for a cool coastal climate.
We get plenty, and more, of winter rain, a dry summer. It doesn't freeze to speak of... a light frost at worst, but we don't get much summer heat. Well, we don't get summer heat at all, really.
We have a flat with clayey soil, poor drainage, and good sun.
We also have a north facing hillside with deep loam and much better drainage. It gets reasonable sun near the top, and that's where I was thinking putting the fig.
