I have a 3 yr old fig tree. I bring it in our house for the winter. Right now, (3/16) it has over 20 figs on it!
Does anyone know when I can put it outside? I'm in zone 6b.

Edible Figs (Ficus carica) can take light frosts even when leafing out, when so acclimated.
However, a plant that has been grown indoors in Winter is not acclimated and could more easily suffer frost damage.
Still, according to the National Weather Service you are not expected to have frosts in the coming week.
You might try putting your Fig outside now, but if a late cold spell is predicted, do bring it back in.
