You may want to try eating figs before you grow one. To me, it's easier to like dried figs. Dried figs are similar to dates. However, fresh figs taste differently. It is an acquired taste. I know people who love dried figs but can't stand fresh figs, my husband included.
This is the first year I ate a several fresh figs from my own trees. Different varieties taste differently. My Paradiso, even not fully ripe, tasted good. My Chicago hardy, only the fully ripe ones tasted good. The soft, ripe but not wrinkling fully ripe had raw taste to it.
I have 6 varieties. If I were to get more, I'll be quite selective. If you can, try some fresh ones to see if you'd like them enough to grow them.
