Celeste Fig is a long-lived deciduous fruiting tree that produces two crops a year and has an interesting winter silhouette.   The large lobed palmate leaves are mid-green with soother light undersides.  The sweet-smelling fruits are produced in spring and summer and ripen to a brown purple with pink flesh.  Highly adaptable, but provides the best fruit in full sun and well-drained soils.  Excellent disease, drought, and heat resistance.
