Hi, does anybody have any advice on which fig varieties are the most frost-tolerant? (I live in the Mountains)

Many thanks,
Taryn

Hi Taryn,

I have 3 fig varieties here in the Adelaide Hills where we get regular frosts through to mid spring, where it gets down to about -4C. Fig trees go dormant through winter, and dormant fig trees are hardy to about -12C so you should be fine with any variety in NSW.

However, I have read that the brown turkey variety is one of the most frost tolerant, as it may be less likely to break dormancy during warm spells in winter.

Hope this helps, Alex.
