Figs are mentioned in many of our earliest texts, as these broad, deciduous trees have been in cultivation for thousands of years. The fig tree’s leaf, in particular, is a widely familiar shape that has provided some of the world’s most famous statues and paintings with strategic covering and a modicum of modesty. In the landscape, these large, deeply lobed leaves provide a coarse texture and cast dense shade. The tree itself is usually short but wide in stature with smooth, silvery bark, multiple trunks, and a remarkable tolerance of desert heat and sun.
‘Texas Everbearing’ produces 2 delicious crops of mildly sweet, nearly seedless, medium-sized fruit each year; the first ripens in late May or June, and the second follows in late September to early November. This dark-skinned fruit is often compared to ‘Brown Turkey’ in appearance and taste, but the flesh of ‘Texas Everbearing’ has more amber tones and the tree has a more upright form.
