    Welcome! Please tell us a little more about your trees (age, varieties, pots or in ground, etc.) and your location so that we can help you out.

    Based on your post my initial guess is that the fruit is in what's called the "stagnant phase." Figs will form and grow to a certain point, then sit in the stagnant phase (small, green, and hard) for anywhere from 3-8 weeks. Does that sound like what your seeing?

      Some figs produce small fruit. Others produce giant monsters. It all depends on the characteristics of the fig variety. Environmental conditions will affect this somewhat, but genetics plays a key role.
