I do grow figs...brown turkey. They need a long growing warm season and a mild winter or at least protection over winter. Only the smallest, embryonic figs will survive to regrow in the following spring to,produce edible fruit in late summer. Any figs larger than this need to be removed and composted. . Grown in a pot they will do very well if taken into the GH in winter.
Couple of,problems......birds know exactly when the figs are ready and take them on the very day you decide to. And they do grow very quickly and large so,pruning in the very short dormant season is necessary. Cut a ripe fig open and be amazed by the colours of the fruit. Taste of a warm, fresh fig is yummy
