'Brown Turkey'....Silk Purse from a Sow's Ear?
For years I have read all the postings about the insipid flavor of the ubiquitous, "Brown Turkey" figs, so I just need to ask this question:
Are there any cultural recommendations that will improve the taste of this bland-flavored variety, or, is it just a proven dud, and not worthy of the time and effort? Does anyone on this forum grow this fig variety well? What's the secret?
The north-east garden centers are always loaded with this fig tree, Celeste, Kadota, and virused-Mission.
