 My favorite fig for container is Brooklyn White for largest crop, but
you can grow just any fig in a container.
here's a photo of my Brooklyn White

  I want to buy two or three more figs for pots now. I've been looking
  on e-bay and Internet. I had a few good sites on Internet a few
  years ago but can't remember what sites. Anyone have suggeations for
  varieties for pot growing?
