Q.

What causes figs to grow dry?

Zone Antioch, California | dezyrayray added on May 26, 2015 | Answered

I have a fig tree in my back yard that hasn't really been maintained but it grows bright green leaves and wealthy sized figs. The only problem is when the figs ripen they are dry and tasteless.
