The figs that will develop next year are at the moment tiny; they will remain like that until next Spring when they will start to grow. If they are big enough to be recognisable as a fig they will not be any use and can be removed in the Autumn.
Ivyhouse, you can try poaching them, but I fear you will be disappointed. I tried it many years ago and was not successful. But, experimentation is what it's all about.
