Be a Fig Hunter!Figs are steady. About 10 gallons ripening per day.
You have to be a bit of a Fig hunter, and look for the fruit up and under the leaves.
Best picking is in the mornings.
Mid to late afternoon we clear the ripe figs from the trees.
Check out our latest newsletter for more details.
Figs will slow in a couple of weeks but
continue until late September.
There are still a few to pick and we still have some in the cooler.
At the End

to make sure we have not sold the last of them.
Don't forget snippers for harvesting!
It is very important NOT to tear bunches from the vine.
