      I thought Houston was hot?

      Figs are prolific here in Istria. Half the time people just let the fruit fall on the ground, which is a pity, as they are easy to dry and provide tasty fibre for the winter months.

      Cheers

      I've know people who have grown figs here in Houston, Texas. However, our winters have been getting colder and colder.

      I never imagined that anyone would try to grow figs in Norway!  People have a hard time growing them in North Carolina and it gets hot in in the summer.  Figs are not very tolerant of cold weather.

      Any one have links or seeds available for "extra hardy"  figs ?

      I have ( had) - tried 
      "brown turkey",  King and Galbon
      got to kjnow these should be hardy figs that are grown in alpine condidions in France..
      but they are not sufficiently hardy to stand a Norwegian winter- above ground.
      I got holod of Afgan figs, that should be even hardier,  
      but they died befor beeing able to show how hardy they should be...

      Any help out there ???
