Celestial (or as some have shortened the name to Celeste) Fig is a wonderful fig for the home gardener. All fig trees are fast growing fruit trees that grow fresh fig fruit over a long period. The brown turkey fig tree and the Celeste (Celestial) fig trees have been important old varieties grown in the United States for hundreds of years. For gardeners who prefer black fig fruit, the Jack's Black fig and the black mission fig are tasty fig tree cultivars. The Black Mission fig is famous, and was introduced into California by Spanish missionaries hundreds of years ago. Jack's Black fig is very sugary, suitable for dried fig markets and elongated in shape.
