I believe the fig that most of us are thinking about is the common fig(Ficus carica) used for making fig cakes, newtons and figgy puddin'.  These trees are only hardy to hardiness zones 8 to 10 and are indiginous to Western Asia and Eastern Mediterranean reagions. Not bow wood but good eating fruit.    Pat
