what is a good first fig tree?
i have only grown plants, but no fruit trees. however, i was talking with my wife about growing some fruit tree after visiting my father in law few weeks ago. he has number of things growing in his backyard and i wanted to try some.
reading and researching the net, i found fig tree is not very hard to grow. so decided to give it a try. but not really sure which one to try.
i heard good things about paradiso, violette de bordeaux, and many others.
i live in north carolina. it's very hot here. it's almost oct. and temp is still going up to 90 degrees during afternoon. and it can get very humid.
what would be the best fig to try? i can only have one fig tree to start with. after that, if i'm able to keep it going for year or two, i might give a shot at few others.
i read good things about edible landscape, raintree and figtrees.net from this forum. what would be a good fig tree that won't disappoint me too much?
