Fig Tree

Thanks for the suggestion.  What about the 2013 2nd crop, which in the country i believe is never going to ripen. Should I remove them entirely?  They are nearly the size to pick, but I guess to late to ripen this year.

I have a load of unripe figs on my 2nd year tree in a pot, and need to know if I should remove them all at this time of the year. Had a small crop of about 6 in August and can also see some emerging pea sized which I believe will be next years crop which I should leave. Can someone confirm?

I live in SW Essex and do have a convenient brick wall against which I will transplant the tree next spring into a paving slab lined hole.

I have a Brown Turkey fig tree in a large pot and now in its 2nd year. I had a small but delicious crop of 6 figs this year, picked last month. I now have the 2nd crop which are quite large - around 2cm and there are about 30 figs. I can also see next years small pea sized figs just emerging. Normally the pot is outside but I brought it into my greenhouse with doors and windows open as the birds were taking an unwelcome interest, as the fruit was ripening.

I live in SW Essex.

My question is, should I now remove the 2nd crop, which I presume will not ripen?

Thanks for reading..
