The fig originated in the Old World Tropics, Asia Minor and the Mediterranean region. In the Mediterranean, the fig has been cultivated since as early as 5,000 BC. The fig tree was first introduced to the Americas in 1575 by Spanish explorers in Florida. On the West Coast, in the area that eventually became the State of California, Spanish Franciscan missionaries introduced the cultivar, Mission, to the area that, in 1769, became the mission San Diego. 1

The fig is one of the most popular and desirable fruits of warm-temperate areas. It succeeds in every region of Florida, from Pensacola to Homestead. Once it is established, the fig requires little mantenance, although it may be troubled by nematodes when planted in sandy soil. The tree is handsome and well behaved. Some cultivars produce 2 crops a year. In light of its many attributes, the fig should be used with great frequency in the home landscape. 4
