There are lots of figs in our neighborhood that seem to grow like weeds. Alkaline soil, flood irrigation every two weeks during hot weather, heavy clay soil, in ground. They are mostly planted in full sun or part shade. They are really, really bug trees, probably Black Turkey or Mission.
Can't help you with pot figs, though.
I love, love fresh figs and if I were going to stay here longer I would plant some for myself. Figs and pomegranates seem to do quite well here in the desert, although figs seem to do well in a lot of places.
