I have several varieties from Andreas that are common type that grow bigger than a quarter not swelling but have slight color change than fall off. Look like foam inside. Have anyone else had this problem. Have them in pots. They have never went dormant either because of greenhouse. Two years old perhaps three. Thanks Richie

The older they get the less likely they are to drop. For example my Celeste that are in ground, are about four years old. Last year and the year before they dropped quite a bit of small fruit before ripening. This year I've had minimal fruit drop. No fertilizer even.

i was wondering about the trees fruit. It seems they are getting bigger before they drop compared to last years fruit

Richie,
I have a few that are on your list. P Aspra Sika are not ripening, but nothing is falling off. It took Pink Jerusalem 3 years for mine to hold the Fruit and produce. Perhaps they need time.

I believe there is more to the story of these supposed common Greek figs.
