    Brown turkey fig

    This plant does very well here in El Paso, Texas where temps are over 100 in the summer, well below freezing in the winter, and the relative humidity is often under 10%. Makes a nice "small tree/large bush" with deep shade underneath. Very attractive but for best fruiting, requires ample water best provided by drip irrigation, or regular irrigation and high water table in the Lower and Upper Valley.
