I have several varieties from Andreas that are common type that grow bigger than a quarter not swelling but have slight color change than fall off. Look like foam inside. Have anyone else had this problem. Have them in pots. They have never went dormant either because of greenhouse. Two years old perhaps three. Thanks Richie

The older they get the less likely they are to drop. For example my Celeste that are in ground, are about four years old. Last year and the year before they dropped quite a bit of small fruit before ripening. This year I've had minimal fruit drop. No fertilizer even.

i was wondering about the trees fruit. It seems they are getting bigger before they drop compared to last years fruit

Richie,
I have a few that are on your list. P Aspra Sika are not ripening, but nothing is falling off. It took Pink Jerusalem 3 years for mine to hold the Fruit and produce. Perhaps they need time.

I believe there is more to the story of these supposed common Greek figs.

I think it is best to wait 3-4 years before concluding which varieties are common or not. Even with the presence of wasps, most of my fruit from Greek and Turkish varieties dropped off until the 3rd or 4th growing season. Some trees were 6-8' tall last year and of good size but did not mature their fruit but did this year. I don't know why. I am hoping to remove the few wild caprifigs near my orchard this next year and temporarily relocated my potted caprifigs to help assess which varieties are not common types.

As always you have great information Harvey. Thanks. Some of my Greeks are very young. Some others may surprise me. Thanks. Richie

Unfortunately figs get passed around too quickly before they can be properly verified as to cultivar and type.
Agree with Harvey you need to wait to find out.
Worst case scenario you may end up with a lot f root stock .
Has anyone tried importing the fig wasp to LA?

I have plenty of Capri figs at different stages of ripening. Need the wasp.

Getting the wasp there is easier than getting it to sustain a population. Are your winters typically 28F or warmer? I think many days much colder than that kills the mame crop over the winter that harbors eggs for the next generation of wasps.
