Frankly a fig will not be happy in a position that Valerie describes (indoors). We are not in Malta so unless the plant is in a greenhouse you will not get two crops, which is normal there. The OP does not mention the variety of fig.
I had a Brown Turkey against a SW wall in west Wales and it gave many, many ripe figs, but every year the small figs that were not going to ripen were removed. I have also grown a Castle Kennedy in a greenhouse and had many ripe figs.
Beware of 'wonder fruit' advertised. Often they are old, sub-standard varieties. The RHS grows a large greenhouse full of fig trees in big tubs. They are an authority I would trust.
