Homegrown figs

Figs in a bowl, harvested mid-July

Fig today, ripened this week (2nd week of September)

Fig for breakfast, not as good in July but ripening in latest warm spell this week.

The tree is very happy in a sun-trap walled corner and still has about thirty figs but they might not all ripen. We’ve taken three ripe ones this week and now all depends on this latest warm spell. We planted the tree in virgin soil that had been under concrete till 2018. It has grown from a small houseplant into a huge and still spreading plant, a kindly monster.
