I live in Cary, NC - a suburb or Raleigh.  I got into figs two years ago and it is a lot of fun.  

Sources for fig trees and cuttings are - church gardens (many in this area have fig trees and will trade a cutting for a donation or a rooted fig tree), garden clubs, farmers markets - the State Farmers Market in Raleigh is great, and just asking people that have fig trees for a cutting.

The best figs in North Carolina in my opinion are grown on our coast - trees do better with the milder weather and some families have been raising figs for more than five generations.

Popular fig types here are Black Mission, Brown Turkey and Celeste.

If you come through Cary I can give you some cuttings of all the above.

Good luck!
