    Hello,

    I live in West Vancouver near Horseshoe Bay and would like to plant an fruit bearing fig tree in my new garden plot.

    I know that fig trees survive in the Lower Mainland but I am interested in having one with very tasty fruit.

    Several names I have come across are:
    --Brown Turkey variety
    --Kadota
    --Green Ischau

    Do you know if any of these varieties are available here and if they are, which one would be best suited for the garden?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Hi there, at our nursery we usually carry:
    Brown Turkey, White Kadota, Black Mission and Latarulla. all seem to do ok in the GVRD, but to get ripe fruit you need to have a nice, long hot season. They can take some dieback in cold, dry winters.
