My son and daughter-in-love have a beautiful fig tree in their back yard...
I can't wait for the figs to be ripe...
Literally, I couldn't wait for them to get ripe!
I picked one early and it wasn't ready.
If you see fresh figs in the store they are most likely expensive. Because they are so delicate once harvested. They barely make the 30 minute drive back to my house. I found a good idea to transport them in cardboard egg cartons.
Here is what they look like on the tree.
A closer view...
You can see the prickly little hairs on the baby fig.
