Celeste Fig Tree: Sweet Harmony in Every Bite

About the Fruit

Discover the luscious and sweet Celeste Fig, a fruit that’s as delightful to the palate as it is to the eye. Often referred to as the ‘sugar fig’, Celeste boasts a rich, purple skin with a beautiful rose-colored flesh. Each bite of this small to medium-sized fruit is a symphony of flavors, perfect for fresh snacking, preserves, or as a luxurious addition to desserts. Its natural sweetness and smooth texture make it a favorite among fruit connoisseurs.

What to Know About the Tree

The Celeste Fig Tree is a picture of grace and resilience. It’s a deciduous tree, which means it sheds its leaves in the fall, but not before displaying a spectacular show of foliage. With its compact size, growing up to 7-10 feet tall, it is an excellent choice for those with limited space. It also features a high disease resistance and is known for its ability to withstand cooler temperatures, making it a hardy addition to any garden.

Harvest Season

Anticipate the arrival of summer, for that is when the Celeste Fig Tree begins to bear its sweet treasures. The harvest season is joyous and abundant, as branches become laden with the delectable fruits. These figs reach their peak ripeness just as the warmest months come into full swing, providing a refreshing and tasty respite from the summer heat.

Fruitscaping™ with Fig Trees

Embrace the joy of Fruitscaping™ with our Fig Trees. Among the simplest and most rewarding fruiting plants to grow, figs are an excellent addition to any organic garden. Their inherent disease resistance and few pest issues can be managed easily without the need for harsh chemicals, ensuring a bountiful, eco-friendly harvest.

Our Fig trees exhibit a diverse palette of flavors, textures, and ripening seasons. Some varieties possess thin skins with succulent centers evoking the flavor of rich maple syrup – a delight when savored fresh from the tree. Other varieties offer a naturally sweet texture, perfect for drying or turning into delectable preserves.

With their compact growth habit, fig trees are perfect for integrating into the shrubbery border, adding an attractive contrast with their broad, deeply lobed leaves. Consider pairing these distinctive trees with the elegant pomegranate and the fine-textured blueberry bushes for a stunning visual mix. Complement this arrangement with a lush undergrowth of strawberries, creating a cycle of blooming flowers, ripening fruit, and vibrant fall colors.

The young fig tree’s smooth, flexible trunk lends itself to creative gardening techniques. Train it into an espalier for a living wall, or twist it into a striking specimen tree. If you’re dealing with limited space, lay the trunk flat against the ground, and watch as the vertical shoots transform into a natural, green hedge.

Fig trees are also well-suited to container gardening. The root restriction of a pot often encourages the tree to produce even more prolific crops. So, if you’re an urban gardener or short on garden space, our fig trees will prove a perfect fit.

Embrace the ease and joy of Fruitscaping™ with Fig Trees. Enjoy the journey from planting and care to the sweet reward of your homegrown figs.

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
