When we’re asked about the easiest fruit trees in North Texas, figs are always in the conversation! They are very well-adapted region’s climate, (heat, drought and cold!) as well as our sometimes challenging soils. Their beautiful form, robust nature and delicious fruits make them a favorite among gardeners– both seasoned and novice. They grow best in full to part sun and in soils that are sloping or relatively well-draining. If you have those conditions, they truly need little care once established. Below is a list of some of our favorite cultivars that promise a fruitful harvest!

Arising as a sport of the exceptionally flavored Violette D’ Bordeaux, the Little Miss Figgy cultivar is a charming addition to any garden, prized for its petite size and delightful fruits. This ultra compact tree typically only reaches 6 to 8 feet, making it an excellent choice for small spaces or container gardening. The dark purple fruits are small to medium-sized, with a sweet and succulent strong berry flavor profile.
