The Celeste fig tree produces fruit that is medium in size and has light brown to purple skin and bright pink flesh. The flesh is very sweet, and it’s popular eaten fresh as a dessert fruit. In fact, it is also referred to as “sugar fig” on account of its sweetness. This fig is also a good processing fruit and is frequently used for both preserves and drying. The fruits are “closed eye,” which greatly discourages dried fruit beetles and fruit rots. The trees are very cold hardy for fig trees. Celeste figs are resistant to many pests and diseases, and they are self-fertile, which means only a single tree is needed for fruit production.
