Native to western Asia and southeastern Europe, figs grow well in USDA Zones 7-10. In Zone 6, plants will usually experience significant dieback in cold winters, which means that figs can’t be grown outdoors reliably anywhere in New Hampshire. However, they can be successfully grown in containers, taking harsh weather out of the equation.
