Brown Turkey Fig Bushes in Zone 5
If some type of protection in winter is necessary, what type? If not, Brown Turkey in my growing zone, could you perhaps suggest another type?

Brown Turkey figs can survive in Zone 5, but you will need to mulch the base very well, plant it in a sheltered location (such as next to a wall or building) and expect that it will die back to the ground every year.
Other more cold tolerant figs include Chicago Fig and Celeste Fig.
