It appears that your FP does not have leaves yet?  I am wondering if the figs will ripen properly without leaves to provide the sugars from photosynthesis.  Please let us know how they taste.

Use a pellet gun and eat the squirrel.Squirrel with Louisiana hot sauce.Fig trees are the bait for a good meal.

update ...this fig was starting to spoil so I had to pick it....unfortunately it was pretty tasteless because it was picked to early, but there are a few more on the tree, hopefully the rest will be better...sorry for the poor picture quality
