Celeste Fig

Ficus carica 'Celestial'

 
 

A Southern tradition, long-lived and hardy, Celeste's reputation comes from many generations of people that have grown this fig. Best of all, when the countless figs begin to emerge on your Celestial Fig Tree, the first thing you'll notice is their incredible color. The smooth and shiny outer skin glows a magnificent purplish bronze. Slice one open to reveal the glistening, pink-amber flesh. This is one fruit that tastes as delicious as it looks. Perhaps that's why enthusiasts refer to the Celestial as the 'sugar fig'. This fruit's rich flavor combined with its crunchy seeds and chewy texture makes the Celestial Fig wonderful fresh off the tree and excellent for preserving.
