    Watched a british gardener he said don't touch brown turkey they have the least flavour of all the figs. Tend to agree I bought some from the supermarket and they were very bland and disappointing.

    1:16 don't forget an added bonus is they can be eaten fresh right off the tree 😉

    I had a Brown Turkey in SE Missouri and two of them grew to over 15 feet high and wide! One never did bear fruit though?

    Im in greater london uk i have a brown turkey in its 3rd year in a raised bed in the sun.My figs are in there bigger fruiting year.Ive just weighed one and it was 188 grams.All ive done is take of any leaves that are damaged or are deformed being under a bigger leaf.all ive done is water it once ever 3-5 days.Theres lots of new figs but theres maybe 10 or more that are going really purple BUT its like there growing too fast.There actually bursting open.Im not sure if il eat any of the burst open ones as bugs ant ect may get inside it via the splits.Im just really pleased how BIG the figs are.I suppose is there a way to stop them bursting open? or should i just enjoy the fact that yhe figs are bigger than tennis balls..Anyway i thought i would just share with you fig growers my fig news.188grms in its first mature crop success.

    Sorry but Brown Turkey figs are not the best figs. They have tough skin and little flavor compared to most figs. Seek out Italian varieties and sources on internet.

    I purchased my brown turkey fig tree while living in Houston. I grew it in a pot. 3 yrs later we moved to Dallas.  We decided to plant it straight in the ground.  It has survive the most cold, freezing, heavy snowing winters. It always put out little fruit, but this year, the fruit are nice and large, extremely sweet.  And in fact, it's large enough to partly shade my car on the back driveway.  I've made some typical English Jame, I used 5 lbs fruit and 2.5 (half fruit weight) of sugar, added a touch of fresh ginger, a 1/2 cup water and chopped up all the fruit after removing stems, and now have the most beautiful Jam.  I'm going to make a hot relish from the next batch.  Great with Port chops, chicken etc.
