I'm interested in planting a fig tree, but I'm getting some conflicting information. University of Florida lists several varieties including Alma, Black Spanish, Brown Turkey and Celeste, but elsewhere I read that some types don't self-pollinate and others don't produce fruit at all here. I've also read that they have high water requirements, which won't be a problem except for a few months in late spring. Anybody tried this in north or central Florida? Is it possible to plant just one, or will I need to find room for two?

TIA
