Interesting writings of Ira J Condit available on the Internet may provide useful knowledge to all interested in growing figs and to answer to most of their today's questions.
. University of California Press, 1922 This is 'Circular 77' he wrote in 1933. https://books.google.pt/books?id=Hl8VAwAAQBAJ&pg=PA1&lpg=PA4&ots=6q8YT7qYo7&focus=viewport&dq=Gasparrini+and+the+fig+wasp&hl=pt-PT Another interesting book of the same author can be easily found on the Internet (free) Caprifigs and Caprification Francisco Portugal

Interesting links, I didnt know how to sulfur my figs now I do. I also need a 3' x 4' iron pot to boil the ingredients to control scale. apparently 100 years ago figs were a big farm item. Sometime when I have a lot more time ill read them all.
