How To Care

When planting your Celeste Fig tree be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant this Fig tree almost any time of the year.

Fig trees thrive in full sun and are adaptable to a variety of soils as long as they are well-draining. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 3 months while your tree is establishing. After the establishment period, in most areas you will only need to water during dry spells. However, if you are in an extremely dry and/or hot climate, you may need to water a couple times per month in summer throughout your Fig tree's life. If you see wilting leaves, your Fig tree needs more water. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is highly recommended for Fig trees. Mulching protects those shallow roots from drying out. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in spring to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release, balanced fertilizer like the one we carry to feed your fig. Once established if your tree is growing and fruiting well, there is no need to fertilize. Figs trees grown in containers will need fertilized 3 or 4 times per year as nutrients leech out of the pot when you water. Prune your Fig in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches and to maintain size.

Celeste is a a disease and pest resistant variety of fig.

Harvesting Tip: Do not harvest your figs until they are ripe indicated by a rich purple/brown hue and a fruit that has some give. Once picked, figs stop ripening.

Not very pretty

Not at all like the other plants I purchased. Very few leaves and doesn't look very healthy. Hopefully it thrives

Celeste Fig Tree

The little tree came very quick within 2 days of ordering. It was well packaged and was with no damage. The little green buds are just starting to open. We are excited to see how it grows! Will definitely plan to purchase more trees for our new home from them!
