I bought two small fig trees in Florida this past winter. The tag says they are good to -20. Does anyone else have figs in the north? I am in northern Pennsylvania and want to get them in the ground

I live in zone 7 on the eastern shore of Maryland near Delaware and have a huge fig tree much to my amazement. When I planted it I thought it would stay small.
I get some figs in the spring and then a ton in August. Never seem to have enough time to do much with them except pick and eat in the morning before work.
Get it in the ground so it can get established before autumn. Maybe shelter it this first winter. They like water during summer

I live on the western side of WV and have a brown Turkey fig planted on the south side of the house. I live in zone 6a and normally each year my tree dies back to the ground if I don't give it lots of protection. I get a small crop of figs each summer on the new growth. This past winter was so mild that the tree has grown 4 feet and has a couple of gallons of figs on it. You can keep a fig tree for years in a large pot. That's what I'm doing with my new one.
