Does this tree have any problems with pests - deer, rabbits, etc?

BEST ANSWER: I have had no problems with any mammals, and I have rabbits, squirrels,
chipmunks, etc. I saw Japanese beetles land on the leaves, but they made
no attempt to eat them. I've only had the fig since the spring--it sent out a lot of shoots and branches. We also have deer, but I've not seen them in the garden. I also noticed no evidence of disease. They held their leaves into November.
Before I take ordering. I have a question, are you sure your brown turkey fig is good for zone 5-9? Why the most nurseries said it is hardy in zone 7-9 when I search in the internet? My house is in zone 6, which fig is good for my area?
Zhen g on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Brown Turkey Fig is rated for Zones 5-9. This variety needs protection when temperatures drop below 10ºF. The Brown Turkey, Celeste, and Chicago Hardy are all rated for your location.
