Fig Tree
Q.

Will figs still ripen in October

Zone San Francisco, CA 94114 | Anonymous added on October 26, 2019 | Answered

We have several questions about a fig tree in San Francisco. This fig tree was planted by former occupants. Last year it bore lovely, delicious figs. This year the tree looks fine, and the figs look great on the tree, but they are still inedible on 26 October. So we have some questions and hope you can enlighten us. Can you tell, by the attached photos: what kind of fig tree it is (what type of figs)? whether the figs might still ripen, even at this late date? is there any hope for future fig “harvests”? Any other thoughts / ideas? Should we give up on these figs for this year? Thank you, in advance. Claire Bettag

Here is information that may help you speed up the ripening process.
You might consult your local extension office to help identify the variety. They would be familiar with what people grow in your area.
