Type of fig to grow here

I recently moved to tennessee. 40 miles north of Chattanooga. I planted Chicago Hardy figs last year, got two small crops off of an 18" tree. This year I put out Celests. Black Mission, and One called a Texas Black or something like that. All have leaves or leaf buds on them now. My question is, What is the biggest, juciest fig that will grow here and where can I get one or two.

Thanx in advance, God Bless everybody.

I would suggest LSU Gold. It is a large golden/yellow beautiful fig that should do well in your area. The skin on this fig is tender and the inside very sweet and juicy. Biting into one is like biting into a melting ball of honey.
