Beall Fig Tree
Beall is a great variety for the Pacific Northwest and other cool climates, as well as California, producing a large and tasty breba crop as well as a fairly early main crop where temperatures are warm enough to ripen it. Tastes just like a peach but with a fig texture.
One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh figs, you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their most tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
