A perfectly ripe fresh fig is a delicacy to enjoy and share -- if you can part with some of your prized crop. Native to the Mediterranean region, figs thrive in long, hot, dry summers but are easy to grow in the landscape or in pots and will often regenerate if they freeze to the ground.
how to grow Fig
Figs must ripen on the tree before they are picked; they won't ripen when picked immature. A ripe fruit is slightly soft and starting to end at the neck. Fresh figs don't keep well; store in the refrigerator for only two or three days. The milky sap on fig trees irritates skin. Wear a long-sleeve shirt and gloves while harvesting fruits.
