Fig Plant - 10 Edible Container Gardening Ideas - Bob Vila
5 of 11
The common fig plant must overwinter indoors (you can keep it in your basement, if it's not too warm). Let it defoliate and go dormant, then transfer the plant to a warmer environment come late March. That gives it a head start on spring. The common fig bears fruit twice per year—in summer and again in early fall. When ripe, it turns red or mahogany.
