Deanna fig

Deanna is an excellent choice for growers all over the country producing a very large bearing  crop as well as a significant main crop. Deanna is a type of fig tree that produces large green figs that turn yellow or greenish-yellow when ripe. The flesh inside is a light red (sweet amber) color and is considered to be of high quality, with a sweet taste. The small eye on the fig helps to prevent spoilage. 

This fig was created by Dr. Ira Condit at UC Davis, Riverside and was meant to replace the Calimyrna variety. Deanna is known for its large size, with figs weighing over 100 grams being common. 

It also has good cold tolerance and was bred to be resistant to cracking and splitting.

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.

Once your fig tree is mature and producing, you should see a harvest of delicious Deanna figs from around July through early September each year. A single Deanna Fig tree can produce as much as 15 to 20 pounds of figs in a season, so be ready for quite the harvest!

To judge the ripeness of your figs, check the texture. The figs will remain firm until they ripen, at which point they will be soft. Once they soften, it’s time to harvest and enjoy them any way you like!

Container Planting

If you live in an area with heavy winters or have a small yard, consider planting your fig tree in a container. With proper pruning, it can grow up to 10 feet tall.

Be sure to bring it inside when the weather freezes and place it in a sunny warm spot. While your container tree probably won’t produce fruit, it will still provide ornamental value to your surroundings.

Self-Fruitful Trees Don't Need Cross-Pollination

Many types of fruiting trees can't set fruit unless they're cross-pollinated by another tree, which means you have to purchase at least two trees. But a fig tree is different '– it's "self-fruitful," which means that it can bear fruit without any pollinating help from a companion tree.

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)!
