Good book about Fig Trees

I would like a book about growing and the care of Fig Trees. I have 2 trees one is my Dad's one my Godfather's, both are gone now. I want to be able to keep these trees in the family for a long time.


We don't have a specific book on our library just on fig cultivation, so I cannot recommend one to you. (Maybe we should get one, since fig trees have become more popular here in the Philadelphia area). I see that Amazon offers a few.

I've uploaded relevant pages on figs from a book in our library, The Fruit Tree Handbook.  See attached file.

We have other books here in our library on fruit culture, should you want to visit -- or, your local public library may have suitable books.
