Has anyone grown this successfully in our area?
There is a very active Fig forum. Try your question there and many folks in the DC/Baltimore/NoVA area will answer. I have 2 very healthy figs this year thanks to all of the help and advice on the Fig Forum.

This grows a little too successfully in a partially shaded area between two houses. We are worried about the roots encroaching on a wall. Despite severe pruning, it keeps on doing its thing -- mostly feeding the birds rather than our family!
Thanks Dancinglemons! I've posted it in figs.
Shadysite -- I'm in zone 7, so not sure if it will grow gangbusters here or not...
