There are hundreds of varieties of figs out there. The fig is a very pliable and adaptable species. Some are good for cold weather, some for hot, different flavors abound, some favor the early crop, some the socond later crop, some resist fig mosaic virus better than other, some love containers, some do well in greenhouses. It's a big universe. They are fairly easy to propagate. I have 7 in containers in southwest michigan.

this is a good resource:
