Answer: It's difficult to say what might be causing the problem. You didn't mention what variety the fig is - if the variety is not suitable to the area, the figs won't ripen, or the flowers may appear earlier than the pollinators (insect activity is retarded when temperatures are too cool). Other reasons for dried out fruit include lack of adequate moisture, inconsistent moisture, excessive nitrogen and insect or disease problems. I suggest taking fruit samples to your local Cooperative Extension office and having them examined under a microscope. Helpful folks at the extension office can help determine what the problem is and how to correct it.
Best wishes with your fig tree!
