I have had a couple of Brown Turkey figs here in Northern Virginia for over 
fifteen years (at least that is the variety that I ordered). I've tried every 
trick in the book to keep them from freezing back, to no avail. Now I put a 
heavy layer of leaf mulch over their root systems but, other than that, I've 
given up trying to protect them. Every spring they start over and, if it 
doesn't get too cold too soon, I get a dozen figs.
