Fig growing in central-north Florida
working on figuring out the optimum florida location for fig growing. Have plants inground in Gainesville and the ones near building have done excellent a few unprotected trees away from buildings did freeze back almost to the ground. Gainesville got down to the mid teens during the past couple of winters and I think the area west of Ocala might be best in terms of enough chilling hours for all around growing and yet not cold enough to damage any fig. Lowest acceptable temps would be low twentys.
Marion and Levy county so far look like a good spot, any fig growers in that area that can confirm or deny such ideas?
