Ripening Figs

Asked October 6, 2017, 1:34 PM EDT

Our fig bush/tree is large and full of green figs. It is now Oct.- will the figs ripen? The plant has been in the ground about three years—this is larger than it has ever been and also the most figs. We have never gotten any figs to ripen.

If your figs are halfway ripened and we continue to have mild weather, the figs may ripen. If the figs are small, hard, and green probably not. Here is our page on figs
