In a WSU Home & Garden Q&A in our paper, someone’s question was “Can you grow a fig tree here?” The answer was, cold weather can kill them, but you can grow it in a pot and bring it inside.
But you can grow a fig tree outside — I have for years. I imagine there are others here that do too.
I will be glad to show you how. My first ones become ripe around the 20th of August.
My phone number is in the book. You’re welcome to come over and eat some. By September lots of them are ripe.
