Fruit Gallery #4:
The most fascinating feature about fig trees is the blossoms. You’ll never see them because they grow inside the fruit to produce tiny seeds creating a crunchy texture.
Some of you have read the story about my fig tree. After the tree was nearly destroyed three years ago it made a comeback. But it is mostly suckers and produces more foliage than fruit. The figs that do grow are tiny. I’m not sure anything can be done to correct the problem, but it makes a nice deciduous shrub. It appears the squirrels are getting more figs than the birds; the oak stump beside the tree is littered with dried fig skins. For sure, it is the hidden blossom-produced seeds that they love.
