Subject: HELP Rotten Figs!! Replies: 3
Posted By: pietro Views: 2,153
 
Hello All,

I have 9 fig trees planted in ground (unknown type white: can anyone identify?).  Yesterday I saw that about 20 figs were ripened or over ripened.  The ripe figs were drooping and very soft to the touch.  The over ripened figs looked rotten so I picked them just to get them off the trees.  On almost all the figs I noticed the "eye" was dark almost black, and looked like it had some kind of webbing inside.  I cut these open and found 1-2 critters inside, and what seems like rotten flesh.  I had 1 or 2 figs that were ok, not sweet, and not really ripe, however, they were drooping and very soft to the touch.  I'm a little concerned, because I have 100's of figs growing now and I don't want to lose them.  Could these just be the first crop?  Can anyone shed some light on what I'm experiencing?

I've attached some photos:

Here are photo's showing the inside flesh.  If anyone can help identify that would be awesome.

I picked another 100 or so figs this weekend, not sure what to do with all these figs now!  I guess it's a good "problem" to have.  What does everyone do when they have an abundance of figs?

My first time posting so I had to share some photos of the figs I picked last night.  I have 9 fig tree's (all the same type) in ground.  Only 5 trees are mature enough to produce fruit.  Last night I went down to pick some figs figuring I'd get the usual dozen or so figs.  But much to my surprise I had well over 100 figs!  And there's easily 100's more still ripening.  This has been the best season by far for me.  Last winter was the first time I winterized them, and I think that made all the difference.  I only wish I knew what fig species I have.  It's a white fig, with a light colored flesh, if anyone can help identify that would be awesome.  I can take picture of inside flesh if that helps any.
