Fig Trees

In ancient times, Greeks and Romans cultivated fig trees for their ornamental and edible qualities. Growing your own is a great way to bring beauty to your landscape and unique, tasty treats to your table. Plus, a fig tree can grow well in a container, so it makes a perfect choice for those with limited growing space. Regardless of how or where you grow them, these trees are typically heat-tolerant, drought-tolerant, hardy and low-maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about constant pruning, fertilizing or watering. As they grow and begin to produce, you will see young, green fruit that ripens over time into a brown/purple color. You’ll know it’s ready to pick when it begins to droop. These figs taste great fresh off the tree or dried and eaten later as a snack.

Fig Trees

Buyer's Guide

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a fig tree.

Zone Compatibility

Before ordering any tree, make sure its recommended hardiness zone range includes your area. Your climate plays an important role in whether a tree will produce figs or even survive. Fig trees are heat-tolerant and typically grow well in warmer climates, Zones 5-10. If you are in a colder zone, consider growing a fig tree in a container so that you can bring the tree indoors for protection during cold weather.

Shipping Information

All of our fig trees are shipped to you in our exclusive EZ Start® bottomless pots. These containers allow some roots to be air pruned as they grow out the bottom, so that a dense mass of productive feeder roots can grow within the pot to make transplanting and establishing easier and quicker. These roots also help to accelerate growth rates and may encourage earlier fruiting. When shipped to you, the trees will be approximately 1-2' tall.

Upgrade Option

To give you a head start on growing fig trees, we offer upgrades called Select EZ Start® potted trees for most of our varieties. When shipped to you, these top-grade selections will be somewhat larger — approximately 3-4' tall.

AnnouncementClose

We have some big news...We're joining with Stark Bro's!

Dear Friends,

I'm very excited to announce that after 75 years, Miller Nurseries will now become part of Stark Bro's, a highly respected nursery company that's been "growing" their famous legacy since 1816.

Who is Stark Bro's?

For nearly 200 years, Stark Bro's has been producing high-quality fruit trees, berries and garden plants for gardeners like you. With their great nursery stock and expert advice, they've been helping generations of families reap not only the rewards of growing their own fruits and nuts, but to enjoy huge savings in the process. Stark Bro's has a long-standing reputation for quality, honesty and really taking care of their customers.

When my brother David passed away suddenly last spring, I knew it was time to retire. One of the first things I did was to call Cameron Brown, the president of Stark Bro's. He is a long-time friend and a very trustworthy fellow, and treats his customers like gold. I knew he would take care of you in exactly the same way. David would have liked this arrangement, and I take comfort in that.

What's going to happen to Miller Nurseries and my customer account?

It's only going to get better as part of the Stark Bro's family. You'll now be able to come here to StarkBros.com and sign in with your existing username and password, and purchase products just like you did on the Miller Nurseries website... only the selection will be much larger! You'll still be able to buy Miller's familiar "Canandaigua Quality" hardy plants as well as the enormous assortment of trees and plants Stark Bro's offers.

We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge our family, our wonderful employees, and especially you - our loyal customers - for your support and patronage over these last 75 years. Thank you for being such an important part of our heritage.

Warm regards,
John Miller, CEO
Miller Nurseries
