Wordless Wednesday: Brown Turkey



Brown Turkey Fig (Ficus carica)

  1. I wonder why it is called Brown Turkey. It's not brown and does not resemble a turkey. Wonder if there's a Cold Turkey ficus tree.

  2. One, I am not an expert but I think the "brown" refers to the fruit which is dark colored and "Turkey" refers to country of origin. There are so many varieties of figs but this is one that is hardy for my zone. In a more tropical climate they can grow more varieties.

  3. Isn't it lovely to watch the leaves begin to emerge from their buds?

  4. Waiting on Spring... pretty budding in your image. Here I can not even show what we have. It is too depressing and SNOW is coming tomorrow, so anything I see today might be covered tomorrow. Sad, sad, sad.

  5. The Sage Butterfly, I am enthralled with all the blooms, buds, and fronds that are opening right now. It is an exciting time in the garden!

    GWGT, Ugh! I keep thinking spring is just around the corner for you and the reports are snow, snow and more snow. Will it ever end! You are in my thoughts!

  6. Karin, so this could be the tree which produced the fruit made into dried figs in Turkey. Oh i love the dried fig fruits i bought there, however there is no source here in our country. I love your composition signifying spring.
