Steve, there is multiple thread & photo documentation of which
varieties work the best in ground in Zone 6/7 on Figs4Fun. In fact
there are a number of folks from NJ on that forum with loads of
experiences. It's an inspiring resource & there are some true fig nuts

I suspect that they would all fuse (inosculate) into a single shrub-tree of various varieties, wherein the more vigorous varieties will eventually do better then the others, unless pruned to avoid this; and if in zone 6, eventually all of them will die to the ground and balance among the varieties will for a while begin anew.
