ain't them puppies yummy?? I staggered outside yesterday to share a few ripe ones with a lady in Knoxville who almost cried when I told her I had fresh, ripe figs, and wound up picking about 8 pounds..........................and there were still many, many more left on the branches for me to eat and enjoy. I need a dehydrator!! madgardener, zone 7, Sunset zone 36, Eastern Tennessee where I'll deffinately be trimming the fig back to six foot this year...........(it's only 18 foot tall this year)

But if you leave it tall, the birds eat at the top, leaving you all those you can reach without a ladder!! That's what I do anyway!
