Description

In Mississippi, a medium-sized, light-brown fruit that ripens over a 60-day period. Brown Turkey may be the more desired variety in areas where fig plants frequently freeze to the ground, since Brown Turkey can produce a fair crop on young growth. It has a mild, sweet flavor. The eye is moderately closed and this helps to reduce fruit spoilage on the tree. The plant is vigorous, large, and productive. This is the classic Brown Turkey variety common to the Deep South. Large purple-brown figs are delicious and sweet with light red colored flesh. A tough and productive tree that is easy to grow in warm, humid environments.

Different from other BT's, more like a Celeste.
