DaisyI said:The first crop of figs isn't usually of a quality you want to eat. Its the second crop that ripens in the late summer you want. When I had fig trees, I never even attempted to harvest the first crop - it was for the deer and the peacocks.

They didn't get pollinated. The tiny little wasps that pollinate them were probably not hatched out early enough. The tiny wasps go inside the immature figs and pollinate them. The farmers buy hundreds of bags of the wasps, and hang them all around there orchards to insure pollination.
When you see small paper bags hanging in the fig tree orchards, it's not some joke on the farmer by some kids. The farmer hung them up there himself.
Enjoy your fruit👍👍😋 !!!

Was your winter unusually dry?
