About Vern's Brown Turkey

Mellow, honey-flavored four-ounce fruits with a light amber interior. After the tree has matured for two years, abundant harvests are ideal for drying. Named for Pacific Northwest garden writer Vern Nelson, to distinguish it from less reliable varieties with similar names.

About Fig

The easiest indoor fruit. Fruits in late summer until frost. Good for containers. Best outdoors for summer. Over-winter in a large pot in an attached garage or a root cellar, or bring indoors to over-winter. Can be pruned to make an even smaller tree. Fig trees moved indoors often lose all their leaves, in which case cut back on watering until new leaves sprout. Self-fruitful.
