'Italian Honey' figs are slow growing, but worth the wait. They bear heavily twice a year on trees that top out around 15 feet high. Since the figs don’t require summer heat to develop their rich, sweet favors, they're fine for northern gardens. For bigger yields, plant another fig for pollination. Eat the figs fresh off the trees, or dry or preserve them. 'Italian Honey' is hardy in zones 7 to 10.
