Fig trees in central florida - Gainesville
Will be moving my young ones to a townhouse in Gainesville this summer and will be looking to plant a couple of fig trees
in the backyard. Anyone grow figs in Central Florida?
I will be air layering a black mission, a brown turkey and possibly a green ischia variety for transplanting, after they're established in a pot.
I have struggled over the years in south florida trying to get good fig production and am hoping the gainesville area should do much better. My concerns are with rust fungus, nematodes and whether they get enough chilling hours (below 40 degrees) in a season... TIA
