Wyoming is a tough place to grow anything, but I was determined, and now I have figs. I started Lattarula fig cuttings last year, and a Petite Negri fig cuttings 3 years ago.

Both varieties are producing fruit this year! Sure I had to grow them under lights through winter in a warm-ish loft, and I continue to supplement their lighting to give them a full days worth of light, but it was worth it.

2 of 5 figs aborted on the Petite Negri, and only one developed on 1 of 2 Lattarula figs. So while my small young fig trees will only produce 4 figs this season, I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made with indoor container grown figs that are less than 18″ tall, and relatively young.

Have your own fig variety I should try? Let me know in the comments.
