Product description

From the Back Cover

From Minnesota to Moscow -- how to grow fresh figs in cold climates

A welcome addition to our library from Lee Reich, our fruit guru. We have grown this delicious fruit on Maine's chilly coast, but Lee shows us how to do it even better.
-- BARBARA DAMROSCH and ELIOT COLEMAN, farmers, Four Season Farm, authorsLee Reich has just talked me into trying to grow figs!
-- MICHAEL PHILLIPS, author, The Apple Grower and The Holistic OrchardThis detailed guide is yet another of Reich's indispensable additionsto the gardener's bookshelf.
-- REBECCA MARTIN, Mother Earth News magazine

Growing Figs in Cold Climates is a complete, full-color, illustrated guide to organic methods for growing delicious figs in cold climates, well outside the traditional hot, arid home of this ancient fruiting tree. Coverage includes:

  • Five methods for growing figs in cold climates including overwintering
  • Cultivar selection for cool and cold climates
  • Pruning techniques for a variety of methods
  • Pest problems and solutions
  • Harvesting, including ways to speed ripening, identify ripe fruit, and manage an overabundance
  • New directions and the potential of small-scale commercial fig production in cold climates.

Fresh figs are juicy, full-bodied, and filled with a honey-sweet flavor, and because truly ripe figs are highly perishable, they are only available to those who grow their own.

By choosing the right cultivars and techniques, figs can be grown across cool and cold growing zones of North America, Europe, and beyond, putting them within reach of almost every gardener. Easy and delicious -- if you can grow a houseplant, you can grow a fig.

Lee Reich's tribute to the mighty fig is a monumental and easily digestible resource.
-- JULES TORTI, editor-in-chief, Harrowsmith magazineReich has written the definitive fig book!
-- LINDA GILKESON, author, Backyard Bounty

Lee Reich has a PhD in Horticulture from the University of Maryland, an MS in Soil Science, and a BA in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin. A syndicated gardening columnist, Lee is the author of The Ever Curious Gardener and numerous other books. He blogs from his farmden in New Paltz, NY.

About the Author

Lee Reich , PhD, dove into gardening decades ago, initially with one foot in academia as an agricultural scientist with the USDA and then Cornell University, and one foot in the field, the organic field. He eventually expanded his field to a "farmden" (more than a garden, less than a farm) and left academia to lecture, consult, and write. He is author of many books, including The Ever Curious Gardener , Weedless Gardening , The Pruning Book , and Landscaping with Fruit , as well as a syndicated column for Associated Press. Lee has a PhD in Horticulture from the University of Maryland, and an MS in Soil Science and a BA in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin. He blogs at leereich.com from his farmden in New Paltz, NY.
