Start your own “Brown Turkey” fig tree from a cutting!

Figs are a small, sweet, edible fruit. Fig trees and shrubs have been cultivated since ancient times and is now widely grown throughout the world, both for fruit and as an ornamental plant.

Along with the fig cuttings, the instructions will help your figs have a high success rate.

You can use readily available inexpensive supplies like potting mix, containers, and shop lights.
