Cold Hardy figs to Zone 7B - Seattle and the Pacific Northwest

As I go through my 2nd year of growing figs. I'm starting to compile data on how figs will do here in the PNW.

Last year I had Negronne, Desert King, Petite Negri, & Brown Turkey. All of which did fine in our Seattle winters without any protection.

This year as my list grows to some of the more rare varieties I'll have to be more diligent about protecting certain varieties.

This list is compiled from information that I've collected online from other growers.
