Fig recommendation needed
I would like a recommendation of a fig tree(or fig info. site)for ne Tenn. My husband planted ours over ten years ago, they are more like bushes than trees. I just pruned out last years branches that did not regrow, which was about 90% of the stalks. So we have had 8 ft. tall dead stalks in our yard for over 8 months, I am ready to bushhog the darn plant. The figs don't get ripe until October, then either the deer get them or the frost gets them.
A few days ago I saw a neighbors tall fig tree, she said she got it at Lowes, it was 4 years old, to plant it on the northside of a building, and that last year they had figs all summer long, the figs just kept coming. Unfortunately she did not know the name of it. She said so far they have not pruned it, it looks entirely different(tho the leaves are the same)in the way it is growing than ours, which seem to regrow from the ground each year.
