About Celestial Fig

It bears small to medium, purplish-brown fruit with white flesh, shading to rose at center. Firm, juicy, sweetest of all. Excellent quality. Likes moderate coastal climates. An excellent fig for eating fresh, dried or in preserves. This is the most popular cultivar in southern Louisiana and a very dependable producer of high quality, small to medium sized figs even in unfavorable weather due to its small, tightly closed eye.
