  • HUGE fig "bush"

    This fig bush is on the property of Ft Polaski in GA. There is a sign that tells visitors they are allowed to pick ripened fruit. My DIL took the picture today while they are visiting. Not sure why she took it crooked. She doesnt know the variety.

    Has anyone visited and seen this fig tree before? Just curious as to its variety. Is it weird that I want to go just to see the tree 😁?

    Wow! That is quite some fig tree/bush! I don’t think it’s weird at all. Others might, but I think it’s pretty cool. Do you think she will be able to bring you any ripe ones home?

      She said there werent any ripe figs. GA weather is similar to mine (they are a little warmer and not as cold in the winter). I assume the figs are still dormant and have another 2-4 weeks before the first ripen.

      Yes, I was there in early Fall a couple years ago. I did find a couple late figs that were still edible. It memory serves, it is a Celeste.

        No doubt it would be easy to pick gallons upon gallons when it is at its peak of ripening.

        Thats awesome that you found a few still hanging around 😁. Did they taste good? My first experience with figs (and the basis for my minor obsession) is my Mema's fig tree in San Antonio when I was 4. I would eat them off the tree (mom would rinse them first). It was also more of a bush and really big (at least for a 4yr old).

        A gallon of figs is quite a haul!

      I found some images of it on the google maps site of Fort Pulaski. I might have to check this one out too.
