It’s finally sunny here at French Fig Farm after a week or more of rain.
We took our trees out of winter storage after the last frost date, which was April 10th 2019 in 7A, here in North New Jersey. It’s early May now and they look really good. A little while longer and we will begin shipping them to our customers.
It’s the first week of May, 2019 and we are getting ready to ship trees.
On their way to our customers

Very nice trees shipping to our customers this week
It's one week past the last frost date here in Northern New Jersey and our mature trees are starting to open up. We are looking forward to some of our first crop figs.
We've created and added Staten Island Fig Festival T shirts to our "Fig Tree Accessories" page.
The festival is at 6 pm, Killmeyer's Old Bavaria Inn in Charleston, Staten Island, NY on Sept. 15, 2016.
We are offering this very rare and desirable fig that comes from the Provence region of France.
Monsieur Baud says it has the flavor a Col De Dame Blanc but it ripens much earlier.
These are the pots we use. Please see our new section "Fig Tree Growing Accessories"
We have several 1 gallon and 5 gallon potted trees we will offer for sale this spring. Check for updates in "Fig Trees for Sale" in May.
One of our Col de Dama Rimada mother trees is growing a beautiful bunch of leaves this spring. We will soon have many varieties for sale.
We are looking forward to these this year
Juicy, sweet, hints of Honey Dew melon. Our big tree is producing a lot of large figs for us this year. This fig has recently become one of our good friends wifes favorite fig.
The fig has drooped, it's soft and the skin is shiny. Sometimes the skin will have a light sweet coating. Time to pick it and enjoy it with someone special.
Sweet and fruity
This is a great tasting and great producing fig for the Metro NYC area. Its easy to grow in a container we think it has a sweet berry flavor
Looks like this fast growing French variety will be a good fig producer here in Metro NYC.
Huge leaves, great growth
This is one of our tallest trees and normally is grown in the south of France. Its great that we are able to have the great growth and fruit we see here in North Jersey. We are looking forward to trying the fruit this summer.
We have added a 2-8 day shipping option to help reduce the cost of delivery to our customers who live a little farther away.
Our stock trees are growing very well this year. We have many that are over 8 feet tall.
Our Negronne figs are just starting to grow. Looks like we will have a good crop this year.
We will release these for sale the week of May 25
We have several 5 gallon fig tress, in several varieties such as Calliope's Red Greek, Violette de Bordeaux, Ronde de Bordeaux to name a few, that will we will offer for sale in May. They are 2-4 feet tall and can be ordered on line soon.
